We are using Skype for Business in our company, sometimes there failures or errors we need to send to another employee.

Is there a simple way to directly send a screenshot after creating it without saving it on the SSD of the Mac?

    not without creating Automator action and telling it where and to whom to send it – Ruskes Sep 12 '18 at 7:15

    Besides using system tools, there's a plethora of free screenshot software that will upload a screenshot or a screen recording directly to the cloud and automatically put a link in your clipboard. I use a service like this myself. – Tin Man Sep 12 '18 at 7:42

Right Click on the Folder your screenshots are saved.

Select Folder Action Setup

a new window opens click on Edit Workflow

a new widow opens

set it up as following

enter image description here

Now when you take a new screenshot it will be automatically emailed to your specified person/email.

Save that

PS it will be also saved on your computer at same time, but if you want it deleted we can do that.

  • Works fine with Mail but not with Skype for Buisness. – Fabian Gr Sep 12 '18 at 7:56
  • @FabianGr Sadly Skype for Business does not support images in the chat. You will have to attach a file or choose another way to send the screenshots. – Matteo Sep 12 '18 at 7:57
  • @FabianGr Maybe I missed it. How do you take the screenshot ? – Ruskes Sep 12 '18 at 16:43
  • I use the System Commands for taking screenshots like command+control+shift+4 – Fabian Gr Sep 13 '18 at 5:51
  • @FabianGr then my suggestion should work for you, the person you are sending it to will get it (by mail) unless you insist to send it via Skype – Ruskes Sep 13 '18 at 5:59

You can also copy to clipboard with

  • command+control+shift+3 for the whole screen
  • command+control+shift+4 for a part of the screen
  • command+control+shift+4 followed by space for a single window

and then paste the screenshot in a messaging application. As far as I see Skype for Business does not allow images in the chat. So you will have to use email or some other alternatives.
