Create Highlights
Powerful storytelling starts with Highlights.

Creating shareable highlights from your Zoom meetings is what users love most about Grain. Why watch an hour-long recorded meeting when you can watch a few snippets of the most important moments?

Depending on how your brain works best, we offer two different ways to create a Highlight:

  • During the call, using the live transcript in your browser or the Desktop App


  • After the call has ended, in your Workspace.

Create a Highlight during the call


In each live Grain Recording a Notepad will appear, ready for you to quickly mark down the important moments as they happen, either by typing a note or using an emoji.

*Note: If you are a new user of Grain, you will be able to make highlights using quick tags instead of emojis*

When you take a note during the live call, it becomes shareable—automatically. The shareable clip is what we call a "Highlight."

The beginning and end of Highlights created live are intuitively-timed, but are editable later within your Workspace.

After the meeting ends, the Recording lands in your workspace complete with the transcript that can then be converted into easily shareable Highlight clips.

Create a Highlight after the call has ended

  1. Log in to your Workspace and click on the Recording you’re creating highlights from.

  2. Create a highlight by selecting text in the transcript and then clicking “Create Highlight.”

Pro tip: Make sure the transcript is accurate before creating the highlight.

Add custom context to your Highlights

Your Highlights will automatically be captioned with the corresponding text from the transcript, but by clicking the pre-generated caption you can edit the text to say anything you like. This won’t affect the text in the transcript.

Note: Each highlight can be up to 10 minutes in length
