Click "Copy Shareable link"
If your Screencastify account is connected to your Google Drive (highly recommended), you can grab a link to your recording and share it wherever you'd like. Once you have finished recording, you can select the "Copy Shareable Link" button. The shareable Google Drive link to the recording will automatically be copied to your clipboard.
TIP: If your Screencastify account is connected to your Google Drive, all of your recordings will automatically be saved in a folder called "Screencastify" in your Drive.
If you make the entire "Screencastify" folder shareable, then anybody who has a link to that folder will be able to view all of your past and future recordings.
Update Privacy Settings
When you press the "Copy Shareable Link" button, the privacy setting for your video is automatically updated to Unlisted. If you prefer a different privacy setting, simply click "More Options."
Paste into a Google Doc
To paste a link into your Google Doc, you can right-click and choose "Paste"
press CTRL + V to paste the link.
Optional: If you'd like to replace the link with the title of the video instead, you can click on the link and choose "Replace URL with its title."
Anyone can now click on the link to access the video from your Google Drive (depending on the settings you have created for viewing your videos.)
Tip: If you make the entire "Screencastify" folder shareable, then anybody who has a link to that folder will be able to view all of your past and future recordings.
