How can you generate automated website screenshots?

With Docma you only need to provide a set of instructions once, to generate infinite screenshots!

To get started, simply provide a URL to the website you want to screenshot, then select a capture frequency, in other words, how often you want Docma to take screenshots of your website

And that's how simple it is!

Navigate the page to get the perfect shot!

With Docma you can provide additional steps to reach the desired URL or perfect angle to take the screenshot. Here are some frequent use cases:

  • Need to reach your website’s private area? Instruct Docma to login!

  • Need to take a screenshot with the mouse hovering a button? Tell Docma to click on it!

  • The screenshot you want to take is at the bottom of the page? Docma will scroll to it!

  • Need a video of the whole process? Docma also lets you screen record the full script!

Why do you need automated website screenshots?

Here is a list o the most common use cases for Docma:

  • Knowledge base and tutorials: when it is time to explain how your website works in detail, images and videos of your service or website are much more instructive than a wall of text.

  • Website monitoring: Using an automated website screenshot service, you can have constant awareness of what content your website, or a competitor’s, is showing.

  • Website change detection: If you want to receive a notification when something has changed in a website, for example your favorite product is on sale!

  • Preserve website history: Keeping track on how your website looks like at what time can help you with legal requisites, or preservation matters.

  • Archived internet page: Gather and archive impressions of a website or a service, without logging in every day. For example, you want to keep track of your Google Analytics progress automatically, without manually have to log in now and then.

  • Uptime monitoring: Automated website screenshots can be used as proof that everything is working as expected, and are particularly useful when you have a user-flow that needs to be tested regularly.

Could a video be a better option?

Since Docma can also generate screen-recordings, ask yourself if a video could be a better alternative to a screenshot! For example, over 70% of customers affirm that if both text and video are available on a topic, they will most likely prefer video. This is because customers watching short video content can solve their issue/curiosity in a matter of minutes and without requiring so much effort, compared to reading a 4000-word article or watch a series of images.

Fully automated, from start to finish

Once a task is scheduled, Docma will repeat it with the selected frequency (daily, weekly or monthly) and call a webhook that you provided or send it to your email.

Save frequently used scripts

Think of instructions scripts as blocks that you can compose and re-use - like a login script for example
