MobileHelp: Recording Screen Activity on a Mobile Device for Troubleshooting Issues with Everbridge Mobile Applications


Recording screen activity on a mobile device for troubleshooting issues with Everbridge Mobile Applications.


When troubleshooting issues related to Everbridge on a mobile device, it is helpful to capture the issue in real-time by recording the screen activity.

For example, a contact is receiving notifications with a confirmation link. When tapping the confirmation link, an error occurs and the screen goes blank. It will then be helpful to capture this behavior and share it with Everbridge Technical Support.

If your mobile device has screen recording software, please see the steps below for an example of how to record screen activity. Please note that some older phone models do not have screen recording software and the actual steps used to record screen activity varies by phone make and model.

Below are two examples of recording on a mobile device. One example is Android and one is iOS.
