For years people have asked to have custom flags put in SnagIt and I have patiently waited for it to become the 'killer app' that it could be. This feature plus a few others could dramatically improve the product for new uses and open up a new segment of potential Snagi/Camtasia users. As for me, I would triple my license count by adding it to all management workstations at client offices. 

New Uses:
- real-time workflow documentation for creating manuals, help files, & training
- activity documentation and reference for remote employees and consultants
- report data context with captures for IT support (more efficient,  less customer interaction, happier clients)
- capture workflow of top performing personnel and use it to train new recruits

New Features required:
- custom flag list that can be added to capture toolbars and profiles and may be edited in snagit editor
- ability to sync snagit editor folders with PC folders
- allow the selection of data context information with captures (computer info, user info, application version, PC/MAC file links, and web urls)
- create an XML file with all the data context information and link it to the capture

Note that most of this data context information is already available in Snagit file naming options. It shouldn't be too much trouble to allow one to select the information to save with captures. Consider saving it as an XML file or ???.
