We are migrating from Lotus Sametime to Teams and while teams is pretty nice so far, the biggest shortcoming of teams is the inability to easily send a section of your screen to chat partners.  In Sametime there is a button on the chat client you can click to get a selection rectangle that lets you select part of your screen.  You can then paste the screenshot into chat and send it or you can edit the screen shot by marking it up with a highlighter or box drawing tool before pasting.  This works pretty much indentically to the windows built in snipping tool except there is no extra step to get it into the sametime chat window.

 

This feature in sametime is great for our users who are call center staff who use IM for collaberation extensively.  When an agent has a problem or a question they can quickly snip a portion of their screen into chat and send it to a supervisor when asking for assistance.  Its also great for me when troubleshooting something with a user I can quickly send a selection of my screen with maybe a red box around the item they need to click on to do what they want.  

 

Taking a screenshot via print screen/alt+print screen and pasting it into chat is not a good solution since many of these users are not technically savvy and remembering keyboard shortcuts is very difficult for them.  Also the ability to only show the section you've selected combined with the ability to mark it up with a pen/box tool before sending makes it easy to point things out to other chat recipients.  

 

It would be great if there was a button down with the font/gif/attachment icons that when clicked turned your cursor into a selection cross (as in the snipping tool) that you would then use to select your screen. After selection, a preview view would be shown where you then have the option to make changes by drawing on the screen snip(again, just like in snipping tool).  These drawing options would include pen, highlighter, and box drawing tools for the purpose of drawing attention to sections of the screen snip.  After making your changes (or not) you could then press a button to paste it into chat or another to cancel.  Once pasted into chat it woulc act as any other image with the ability to either immediately send or add text along with the image.

Thanks, thats a really nice tool and its exactly what im looking for in terms of screen shotting and editing, but I'd really prefer to have something built into teams.  Copy and paste is a great hardship on some of our users and the additional steps of a separate application would probably confuse them, especially when they're used to doing it all within their current chat application  We tend to bend over backwards to make things as easy as possible for them so snipping inside teams would be a huge help.  I wish it were otherwise, but you dont really get to choose the users you support.

 

I've got about 30k of them and they run the full spectrum, believe me ;)

 

Snip is nice because by default it autoruns on boot, and shows up along the top of the screen always on top. A simple mouseover and there are your options, completely agnostic of what app you're in. Pretty easy behavior to pick up in my experience.

Hello,

While I wanted to install Snip on a new PC I discovered the Snip will end by the 1st of May 2018.

As FindTime, Microsoft is closing an other Garage project without taking care about user adoption. Now I need to found a replacing tool as Windows inking doesn't replace Snip :pouting_face:

If someone have any suggestion

Regards

Hi Vincent,

 

You can use OneNote to Snip.

 

And FindTime has back to production you can see here https://findtime.microsoft.com/ 

On Windows 10, Fall Creators Update, screen snipping is built in. Just press Win + S then select an area, then paste into chat.

I must use this about 1000 times a day!
If you need more features, the Windows Snipping Tool allows you to use a pen to highlight areas, save as a png, time delay (handy for some menu options) etc.

WIN + S just brings up Cortana for me.

I did find this article, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots, but if there's another hotkey combo that'd be awesome.

Searched some more on this and it seems that the new shortcut if WIN + S does not work for you is WIN + Shift + S (https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2013/06/27/windows-8-1-preview-and-a-workaround-for-your-favorite-win...).

Great tip - thank you!   I was missing my instant screen capture from IBM Sametime also - this is a nice workaround. Hopefully Teams will have the feature native in the future!

@Bravo5MN Another new tip for Win10 - looks like the Windows snipping tool is going to eventually be replaced by Snip n Sketch. It's a bigger window, but the nice thing is there is a setting to set your PrtScn keyboard button to start it up. It immediately dims all monitors and is ready for you to select. I always found SnS kind of annoying - I like the snipping tool - but using the PrtScn button makes it easier to use.

Guys,

 

The whole point of Eric's thread was to get a snipping tool inside Teams.  Diverting away to use another tool defeats the purpose of the thread.

 

Get a snipping tool embedded inside Teams.

Yeah, I use the snipping tools in windows all the time, but we are deploying teams to computers that wont have those tools or to users who have problems using a tool external to their chat application.

 

It would be great to have snipping built into teams,  Optimally it would be a button next to the gif button where the user clicks it, gets a selection tool, makes their selection, and then the selection is pasted into their chat.

 

 

Uservoice is full of 2+ year old requests that haven't made any progress so it doesn't really seem really worthwhile.  Throwing another suggestion onto the pyre when big ticket items like performance aren't getting any response seems pointless.  

There’s a lot of requests that’s got attention over there! the key is to get enough votes for it to be picked up by Microsoft. Some of them don’t get picked up Unfortunately and some goes the backlog ! But it’s the best shot you get
