  • (2023-11-08) Brett Babione: The best screenshot tool that I've found.
  • (2023-08-23) John Wooten: Love it! Lets you record screen captures, full sharable videos, and page annotations with the click of a button.
  • (2023-02-06) Leigh Ann Smith: This is a good extension except that it needs the ability to capture a scrollable fragment withing in a page. Nimbus has this.
  • (2022-10-20) Pierce English: Wow! I have used many video/screen recording tools over the years, but the Zoho team has written so much functionality into this extension - in such a short period - that I am beyond impressed. Each new version contains so many enhancements that it's hard to believe this is a free extension. IMHO, it should probably be part of Zoho One or priced as a commercial product. For anyone who is not familiar with Zoho, you should also check out their "other" 55 Enterprise apps that they have been developing for over 25 years. Great Company !!!
  • (2022-10-06) Gëø Hãrî: Is there any possible way to rename the screen recorder video name in Annotator ?
  • (2022-09-15) Krishnendu Laha: Love the tool... so many features and all for free. Other extensions ask for money just to record beyond 5 mins or put a dumb watermark to the exported photo or video. Superb!!! Highly Recommended. Keep up the good work Zoho team...

  • (2020-04-15) Tony Ruffell: Amazing tool Saves so much time - don't know how I lived without it!!
  • (2020-03-30) Godslove Chinekwe: I use zoho sprint and thought zoho capture would be seamless addition. But unfortunately all the zoho anotator is doing is just to post images to the sprint as backlogs. Am dissappointed that it cannot even locate already existing items in the sprint and post within those, it just create new backlog items. It is posting images and screenshots. And everytime i tried to , the screenshot were NOT displaying in zoho sprint, so what's the point of using the zoho ecosystem Also showing screenshots or images make it hard to track the items or know what it is . Each anotation should be displayed as a text content in zoho sprint so that it can be tracked . Just having an image named screenshot is not trackable. In other tools like slack and asana, zipboard, ringcentra; glip , their anotation tools will post the anotations as texts comments with image attachments which makes more sense, can be tracked etc. Why is zoho anotator not making the anotation text in the the extension.So what if other memebers in the team need to reply to the comment, how will that happen. There is no reply function. i might as well use just save the website as a pdf and anotate in acrobat and paste the link in sprint . it is still gives me a better ability for replies, collorboration etc. Not good enough, unfortunately I had to delete the extension
  • (2020-02-25) Laxmikanth: Loved it
  • (2020-01-25) Ariel Segall: Handsdown the best screenshot tool out there. Awesome extension for Zoho Users - totally integrated with your Zoho ONE applications .
  • (2020-01-24) harish kumar: A supper cool stuff ---- THANK YOU "ZOHOOOOOO"
  • (2020-01-14) Karl Alexander: Great tool and good integrations with other zoho apps. Use constantly with no problems so far!
  • (2020-01-03) John Stevens: This is so awesome! Especially when you are a Zoho One user. Very nice integration. Would be even better if it's not only browser capture but screen capture.
  • (2019-11-19) Janakar M: It works good with cliq option to share. It doesn't work well with projects. It keeps on fetching projects that i have access to and not completing.
  • (2019-11-01) Arturo Cienfuegos: Great screen capture but I wish I could save the image to zoho Notebook - why did they miss that?
  • (2019-10-06) Evidence of Harm: Zoho Annotator has many features that are easy to use. I also like how the developers are actively listening to constructive feedback and making changes to their product (adding features, etc...) Great job Zoho !
  • (2019-06-19) Guo Xin: Awesome. Such a powerful extension!
  • (2019-02-26) Extremely useful for annotating screenshots for use with Jira, the end result image can be copy-pasted into Jira, the capture process is simple, and the annotation tools are quick and easy to use, whilst looking distinct.
  • (2018-11-03) Samir Jiwani: *** Update: Nov 3/2018 - Wow, they looked after this, and I appreciate it. 3 Stars changed to 5! For the life of me, I can't figure out why it can do a great arrow ....but... can't do a plain ol straight line. Would literally give it 5 stars over a straight line and the ability to change the thickness of the lines to something even thinner then the current choices (so I can continue to annotate stock charts). This would also allow me to use my Chomebook almost 100% of the time, right now I have to switch back to Windows to use Greenshot to annotate. Bonus points if I could embed a secondary image in (such as a second stock chart underneath or beside for comparative purposes). Please fix.
  • (2018-09-21) Michael Amico: Finally! An easy simple quick... simple... easy photo annotator. If you've been using awesome screenshot and are sick of all the unnecessary buggy stuff those devs have crammed into what used to be a great app, then my friend look no further. This is the answer to replace awesome screenshot.
  • (2018-08-21) Gopinath: One suggestion - Edit option after DONE will be helpful
  • (2018-08-09) Kurtis Scaletta: Easy to use, does exactly what I need, and has no ad invasion or pestering to upgrade.

  • (2022-06-02, v:1.13.2) LaVerne Cox: Chrome Browser Issues
    Since April Zoho Annotator is not allowing me to link to any of my Zoho Tools like it used to. It is not allowing me to have the link, and the only way I can even get an image is to allow it to go to clipboard prior to annotating the image.
  • (2022-04-30, v:1.13) Jack Crane: Cannot upload screenshots to WorkDrive (or other cloud storage)
    Zoho Annotator's WorkDrive upload functionality is not working. When I try to upload a screenshot to WorkDrive within the extension I receive an error that says 'This site can't be reached'. Note: This WorkDrive upload functionality has been working for atlease a year without issue. But on Wednesday of this week it started producing this error 'site can't be reached' error. I am still able to capture screenshots and even download them, the only part of the workflow that seems to not be working is the Zoho WorkDrive (we also tried other cloud storage options, none of them worked either). It seems to be an issue with the SSO permission authorization workflow. I have also tried to troubleshoot this problem with the following steps but have not been able to fix the issue: 1) Clear all cache and cookies 2) Uninstall and Reinstall extension 3) Sign out/in of all services 4) Use a an Incognito Browser Window

    Hi Team, If we bookmark a page chrome don't show the tab content as bookmark name. Likewise why not we can either make tabname or url as default name for screenshot download instead of just screenshot.png. Else we can offer a settings also for this to set the default name

  • (2021-06-15, v:1.11) Software Dancer: Suggest providing a way to save your work and later edit your annotations
    A great tool. But I am writing help text for an application, and I have a need for software that will allow me to annotate an image, save my work, and then later (perhaps days later) edit the annotations. Sometimes I need to change the text I have written, or replace one comment with another. I don't want to have to re-create all my annotations from scratch if a small edit is required. If you could provide a way to save work in progress, that would be great!

    When using an Element many times - color selections sticks .

BTW - How can you change the Default Color to be other than Purple

  • (2019-05-10, v:1.5) Andra Metz: for use in the classroom for a math teacher
    I am really interested in finding a tool that I can use (and many other teachers) that will allow us to annotate our thoughts on a google slide. We are looking for the ability to solve equations. Given a story problem I would like to highlight the important parts of the story. and then write the equation using my own handwriting. I do not want to have to type everything since we need specific keys to type (like exponents and so on). One last issue that we really need is the ability for us to PDF the slide with the annotation on it. So that we can share with our students the notes from class. Many students need to refer back to what happened in class.
  • (2019-01-16, v:1.3.5) Aboutime Today: Love this - but can I have it linked to my ZOHO apps to save all screens grabs?

  • (2019-01-07, v:1.3.5) Jeff Lemons: Eraser/Select tool
    Not very effective for classroom use with no erase or object select tool. Students must completely reset, or select individual objects to erase. Would be much more efficient with an eraser tool, or ability to select more than one object with a drag select tool. Imagine a student writing something in cursive on a lesson and then trying to correct portion.

  • (2018-11-21, v:1.3.3) Elias Rocha: Make GIFs
    I think it would be very nice if you could make GIFs of your screen, it would really helps if it also be integrated to Zoho DESK, since it's very common for the answers.
