Time stamp

At my company we perform disaster recovery drills every 6 months. As part of the drill we have to provide "evidence" that we have successfully failed to the secondary environment. I use SnagIT to grab images of the secondary servers working successfully. It would be great if SnagIT could embed a time/date stamp of the system time into the image which would prove that the evidence provided was taken after the DR network route was enabled. -Thanks, Brendan Carroll, brendan.b.carroll@fmr.com.

Good news! You can do this. You'll set up a profile and assign the Output to "File". In there you can determine filename prefix, pattern, timestamp, folder location, and more.

Here's a little video that answered a very similar question. I hope it helps!

I think what he needs is to embed the time stamp into the image, not change the file name. To do this update your capture profile under Effects and then Caption. There you can set a caption in the image which can use date / time.

Here's what I learned about time-stamping my image captures.  I'm using Snagit 11.4.1 which has the functionality baked in!
