Partial screen capture in Hipchat

I am going to use Hipchat in my organisation soon. My question is is it possible to perform partial screen capture and then post it into Hipchat ? Let's say for an example :

- you click a button then an arrow will appear so you can crop any space on the screen.

- Once done, you click a button again and then such partial screen capture will be posted onto the chat.

Currently, I believe only adding a screen capture as a file is possible which is not convenient for me.

Hi there, Petch.

While there is no built-in screen capture tool available on HipChat itself, I would recommend you to send it as a file attachment for now though I believe it is inconvenient for you. There is a suggestion created to address this feature to the development team, however it has been around for quite some time due to the lesser popularity compared to the rest of the suggestions:

I can't tell for sure if this will be in the roadmapI can't tell for sure if this will be in the roadmap in the next few months but I encourage you to visit the suggestion page linked above and click the Vote and Watch links near the top right to show support for the feature. By doing this, it will ensure you are proactively informed of progress and updates going forward.

Feedbacks are also appreciated. You can do this by leaving a comment on the ticket as this helps us prioritize & understand the use case of the feature request. Hope that helps.

Hello Ahmad


Thank you for the quick answer which is straight forward. It is clear to me now. I will definitely check the suggestion and vote for it.
