What is Guide Creator by HubSpot?

Guide Creator by HubSpot is a powerful Chrome extension designed to simplify the process of creating how-to guides. Once added, this extension captures a screenshot each time you click on a webpage, allowing you to create step-by-step guides that can be edited and shared with others. With its advanced editing features, you can easily modify the guide's content, share it with teammates or clients, and even restrict access to maintain privacy. It's an ideal tool for knowledge sharing without the need of screen sharing or lengthy explanations.

Create walkthrough guides that show your people how to get things done. Add the Guide Creator Chrome extension and start documenting your processes right away.

When you start capturing, Guide Creator grabs a screenshot each time you click. Once you're finished, your step-by-step guide documenting every step of your process is ready to edit and share.

CREATE BEAUTIFUL HOW-TO GUIDES The Guide Creator editor automatically labels your steps and lays out your screenshots. Crop the images and adjust the wording to suit your audience — whether that's teammates looking for a hand, customers that want to get things done, or prospects looking to find out more about how you can help them.

SHARE YOUR GUIDE AGAIN AND AGAIN Once you're happy with your guide, share a link to a webpage that can be accessed wherever your users are. No need to jump on a call and screenshare each time you need to share your knowledge.

If your guide is just for teammates, lock down access to keep things in-house. You have complete control over who can see your documentation.

Better and FREE alternative to Tango and Scribe. LOVE it! Simple and easy :) Thank you Hubspot

It seems to be a poor copycat of Guideflow or Tango; it's not really a good move from Hubspot's team here. I'm disappointed.

This is a great way to create fast how-to presentations to introduce new features, show how problems can be resolved and enlighten your users to best practices. It is fast and intuitive!
