How to Schedule Recording on PC/Mac?

Now you know screen recorders make it possible to capture literally anything happening on your screen. But a fundamental premise is that you have to control the recordings on your computer manually. What if you are busy at that time and can’t reach the PC while you have an important online course to join?

With RecMaster, the Schedule Recording is right designed for this exact situation. With this feature, users can achieve automatic recording.

Now, let’s check the instruction below showing the detailed steps to schedule recording on Windows and Mac.

How to Schedule Recording on Windows?

Before we make a scheduled recording, there are some settings that have to be configured.

1. First, download RecMaster.

2. Second, go to Menu>> Auto Recording>> Schedule.

Task Scheduler

3. And then, click “Create” and jump to its operation interface.

4. As you can see on the Create Schedule window, you can set the task’s details.

And here are what you can set on the scheduler.

  • Define Task names
  • Set the start and end times
  • Choose the recording mode
  • Set whether to record the system and microphone audio
  • Set whether to repeat the task

5. At last, click ‘Confirm’ and you get a ‘task’ waiting to be executed.

To ensure that the scheduler is launched as expected, please don’t close RecMaster.

And if you hope to record in that background, you can press Alt+d to hide or show the RecMaster interface.

How to Schedule Recording on Mac?

In the Mac Version of RecMaster , the Task Schedule feature is called Duration. And it’s quite different.

1. First, open RecMaster and you will see the option for ‘Duration’ at the bottom-right corner of the main interface.

You can choose 30min, 60 min or customize a preferred duration and hit OK.
3. At last, start the recording and RecMaster will stop the capture automatically when time ends.


  1. First, you can configure these options at the settings interface. And it’s suggested to output MP4 video at high or original quality or MP3 audio format for better compatibility. And besides, frame rate value doesn’t matter too much unless you are going to capture some high-paced moments like games.


  1. Secondly, you have to pre-running the program or projects and keep the PC’s conditions unchanged, or the recording will fail.
  2. Thirdly, RecMaster cannot carry out two recordings at the same time, so please schedule the tasks one by one.
  3. Moreover, the task schedule needs RecMaster running in the background. Make sure it loads at Windows’s booting up.

  2. Record Important online conferences while you are occupied by other things.
  3. Record on-coming online courses.
