Snagit Needs a Start time and Stop time feature with not just a single entry fields but multiples.

A start and stop time is an absolute necessity. In today's world of on-line education, webinars, etc it is not practical to sit and wait for a webinar or streaming service to begin. As an educator and student I feel that this feature is a must. I teach other doctors how to incorporate and use Advanced Lasers in their office. often times when I do a webinar, I'm overwhelmed with request to re-publish. This is impractical. I can market Snagit easily by informing the audience that a software program is available to capture the webinar or live streaming educational series. I myself have been using Snagit for years. I go back to Snagit 9 or 10 or even before. None the less I have always wanted a way to record by a start and stop time. Another reason is that this world is connected 24 / 7. I have Doctors in Australia, and Europe that would like to attend the educational meeting but due to time zones constraints this becomes impossible. Another reason is that some educational webinars and live streaming events occur when people are working and can not sit down to a computer and watch. I myself see patients all day and then if lucky get to see a webinar after hours. Again I think this feature is a must. If you change your mind about the importance of this feature I'll personally market the software to all my attendee's and I have an extended mailing list through my laser Company of over 20,000 doctors. Do you think that this could be viable if the probability of sales could significantly increase. I do. I think from the comments I've read and the outstanding features that Snagit already has why not elevate the software to the best on the market.  Please consider upgrading the Snagit software to include a timing to start and finish feature. Thank You for your time. Dr J Terry Alford, Clinical Director-Advanced Dental Cosmetic Center and the Advanced Laser training Institute.

I do recall at least 3 others besides myself that have made this same request over the past 5 -6 years and i have to say that your statement to the benefits of having start/stop time capabilities for video recording is the most compelling.  With at home learning and work meetings becoming more of the normal way of life, Snagit could be the new "Windows" of the screenshots and screen recordings world if this was added.  i am hopeful that this request doesn't not fall on deaf ears as it seems many before have . I am sure the programming is advanced for this type of function but as you have stated, it would bring Snagit to the next level and leave the competition behind.

I agree.   Times have changed and it is the responsibility of the programmers to understand that if a feature isn't available than no one uses it it. If available I assure you that everyone would use it and it would be very popular.  There are always improvements that can be made. A start time and stop time is a very simple overlay program.  It can be very complicated but that's not what I'm looking for.  There are two or maybe additional  options in a drop down menu.  Either start via a time designated into a start field and a stop time field of course or Start via a delay period and stop on a period of time to record.  Somewhat simple.  You hit the record button and leave. When the time arrives the button is activated automatically.
I really hope they incorporate this feature in the upgrades. I'll buy it immediately.  I'll even beta test nit for them.

If you are sharing all over the world, you likely are using "meeting" software such as Zoom. Nearly all of the "meeting" products have built-in capability to record the session. Just have the Admin for the session record and then post the recording letting all your users know the link to download the recording. While I'm not saying there shouldn't be a timer thing in Snagit, I really don't see a need for it when the simple solution is built into the "meeting" application for one already.
