Why Do We Need to Document a Process?

Document a process and your work will be streamlined

Process documentation

1. It helps improve processes. It mends up inefficiencies by documenting processes. All the procedures and steps and arrangements will be explicit after documentation.
2. It helps preserve confidential information of certain kind of occupation. In this way all links will run in fluency even facing some critical employees’ resignation.
3. Process documentation is also a vital component of business patents and secrets.
4. It helps train employees. You can use process documents to help new employees get accustomed to their roles and familiar with the processes they are about to take over. Process documentation is even useful for experienced staff in that they could refer to the obligation or codes every now and then without bearing them in minds.

How to Make Process Documentation with Video?

In the very beginning, you need to prepare what need to be documented. They could be key points of talking, training cases, market strategies etc.

Then what follows is the question for choices of video makers. You could consider choosing a digital camera all right since this kind of recorder delivers optimum performance on real-time recording. But considering that right now people avoid face-to-face communication and pursue remote working style, I suggest you all to leverage a screen recorder to capture all the things happening on your screen.

Here I will exemplify RecMaster as my right-hand recorder and show you how to document a process with video on PC.

Step 1. Firstly download and activate RecMaster.

Step 3. Before clicking the REC button, you have to tweak settings to promise the quality of your footage. Try to follow by select High quality > 30 FPS > your inclined video format > audio sources (here I highly recommend you turn on microphone sound if you are about to adopt “talking head”) > turn on webcam to better convey yourself.

Step 4. Now run your prepared files in advance and then click start recording. RecMaster is now capturing your movement and the webcam of your profile. During the recording time, make sure to close distracting software, but it is okay if you make flaws consciously, RecMaster’s built-in editor allows you to trim it when all your work flow is done.
Step 5. Stop recording and your footage is automatically stored to your local folder. You can straightforwardly find them at Recording List. There you can further process your video.
