Lesson 6: Set Tasks & Markers in Manager

In Manager, you can view tasks and markers set during the recording in Observer and create new tasks and markers as you review and analyze the video data post-recording. Creating a task or marker in Manager is equivalent to logging a task or marker in Observer.

In this lesson we will cover:

Tasks and Markers in Manager

A task on the Manager Timeline represents the time during the recording when the participant completed each task.

 

A marker allows you to flag and annotate a specific point in time during a recording. For example, when a participant asked for help, took a long time to find something, or made an error.
