What will Tango’s Desktop app capture?

  • The Desktop App is another way to capture high-resolution images of your process for both Mac (ARM & X64) and Windows 10/11. It will auto-generate high-resolution images, highlighting the steps within a Workflow.

  • It will generate a fully editable Workflow that will show up alongside your other Workflows in your Web App.

  • When working between your browser and your desktop, the Desktop App will capture both (including Chrome settings!).

  • Desktop is a Pro only feature. You can upgrade today to make sure you have access to Desktop ASAP!

What permissions will I need to enable to install Tango's Desktop App?

Answer for Mac: When installing the Tango app, we will ask you to enable a few different permissions on your device, which will allow us to create a clear step-by-step guide for you to share. Below are the permissions we ask you to enable on a Mac, and how we use them:

  • Accessibility Permissions: These allow us to track your mouse clicks and keyboard shortcuts (also known as chords). Tango does not track all keyboard actions, but only recognizes when you are inputting a shortcut on an app to complete an action. So, for example, we will capture “cmd+v”, but if you’re filling out a form, we won’t track you writing down your name or any other similar data.

  • Screen Recording Permissions: We need screen recording permissions to take a screenshot to capture each action you take and put it into a Workflow. This is what allows us to create clear step-by-step guides with highlights of each action.

Answer for Windows: If you're using Tango's Desktop app, it is currently signed.

Is Tango Desktop recording even when it’s off?

As long as you have not clicked “Capture Workflow” in the pop-up window in your screen, the Tango Desktop app is not screen recording or tracking your actions on your device. For additional peace of mind, when you are not recording a workflow, you can quit the Tango Desktop app when not recording a workflow.
