πŸš€ With the update to our new dashboard, the term "Highlight" has been replaced with "Finding" and "Highlight Reels" are now simply "Reels"

Findings are a great way to extract important snippets from you session, in order to use in a summary or send to any stakeholders (designers, developers, others).

Lookback supports creating Findings during a LiveShare session and while replaying the session too.

Available on the following plans

  • All plans

Go To Section:

Create a Finding during a LiveShare session

  1. Add a Note

  2. Hover over the new note and click the click the πŸ’‘ icon to convert the Note into a Finding. This will create a 1 minute finding using the timestamp of the Note as the in-point.

  3. Your newly created Finding will be seen in the Findings tab of your project

πŸš€ Just click the menu icon οΈ™ to edit the or timestamps of your Finding

and fine-tune length and location of the Finding.

Create a Finding while reviewing a session

There are two ways to create findings when reviewing a session:

  1. Convert a note to a finding: Hover over the note and click the πŸ’‘icon to convert it to a finding (see above for step-by-step instructions)

  2. Using the timeline

    1. Click the finding icon πŸ’‘ on the right end of the timeline or tap "t" on your keyboard while playing the session to mark the beginning of a finding.

    2. Click the finding icon πŸ’‘ or tap "t" on your keyboard again to mark the end of the finding

    3. Give your Finding a name and click 'Save'.

πŸš€ Drag either end of the Finding to change the length of the Finding


❗️Don't delete the Original Session! The Finding/snippet just points to a part of the original recording. So if you delete the original session, the Finding will also be deleted.
