Record and export session
Can be awesome record the session on log or txt to share or get the flow to review the session history
implementing for 2 years...?
Alex Lei commented
I like the design of this, but the lack of logging feature really turns me off.
The reason I look out of MobaXterm is its logging is too lame...
pls add logging
Absolute must in the networking field, need the entire session output saved every time
These session logs are like "flight crash recorders" for me, allowing you to refer back to critical logs and outputs during a troubleshooting session, or used to track what was being done up until the point of a critical issue
Raphael Büchi commented
I really need this!
How is this still "IMPLEMENTING" after nearly 2 Years?
Daniel Siegel commented
Add another one to the list. I need to log connections all the time. What's the hold up? I am a premium customer. I love this product but I may have to drop it
Just downloaded, literally loved it, withing 5 min of using it I needed to "log" such as putty does and yet here I am.. so glad I did not put my credit card in for premium.. i had gone to get my wallet too lol.. see ya terminus.. uninstalled instantly.

Wow this request goes back 5 years full of "I need this feature"
Well here we are in 2020 still needing the feature. Let's go for 6!!
Why is this app still living without session record feature?! I mean, seriously?!
Oh sorry, here is the Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufE5pLjEN0s
I cannot imagine a more important feature than this to be added to Termius. Here is tutorial I found on YouTube for how Putty does it as sample use case for your developers. I recommend you use Putty as the sample for development. My subscription is over in 4 months. Please update if this will be implemented by then. Thank you in advance for considering this required feature.

@Christopher - that practically made my head explode! Unbelievable!
One comment I'll make to the group - developers are very quick to ask "why do you need this?" or "what is the use case?". It's a very common request. If you understand what the issue(s) is/are that the customer is having and how they would use it, you typically get a good idea of what the feature should be. Unfortunately, there's a lot left to interpretation and, in many cases when the feature is ultimately delivered, it falls short of what the customer is expecting. This is due to poor communication between the developer(s) and the customer(s).
In an ideal world, if the developers provided customers with a wireframe/description of the feature before it's released, there's a good opportunity to make changes before shipping the final build. Of course, this can become a total mess as well because everyone has their own wants/needs, so the process needs to be tightly managed.
With respect to the "Why do you need...?" question - my response to the developers is:
1. Why do I need the ability to export the console log? Have you ever worked on a piece of networking gear? The entire configuration from a switch/router/firewall/etc is visible via an SSH/Telnet session and being able to capture the text is CRITICAL for cases when you can't use other functions to transfer configurations to/from the device (i.e. TFTP/FTP).
I use a couple of different console servers (WTI & OpenGear) that allow me to SSH into them and they connect me to the serial console of network devices.
Hopefully, that makes sense to you.
2. Why do I need the ability to export sessions?
Because if I ever want to use the configuration from my Termius client in other SSH clients, then I should be able to export the address book to a human-readable (not binary or encrypted) so I can import it into something else. I might have to massage the data, but that's OK. As long as I have the vast majority of the content (name, IP address/hostname/FQDN), protocol, port, authentication method, etc. I can find a way to import it into something else.
Please do not deliver the export feature such that the contents of the address book are not human-readable.
Deliver that and I'll renew my subscription. A date as to when to expect the feature would be helpful as well.

I have also cancelled my subscription because this is not being implemented. Going back to Zoc. I actually had an email from Termius with some questions about supporting this feature. Question 1 included: 'Why do you need [this feature]?'
Jeff Hochberg commented
I ended up cancelling my subscription simply due to the lack of support for saving the console log. I absolutely love the product, but I'm not sure how such a basic feature was left out. I'm pleased to see "implementing" as the current status, but there's zero indication as to when the feature will ship. Termius folks - is there anything you can share with us?
installed, figured out I can not log sessions. Uninstalled
Rahat Arefin Ratul commented
Need implementation of this feature. This app will become useless if I can't send session logs to my device support center.
Please add this feature now. NOW NOW NOW
Mike Shelton commented
Lots of comments this week but zero updates since March 2018 on the implementation of this feature. If you can’t do this in mobile, at least add it to the desktop edition. I think many of us might pay $15-$30 for this feature along with everything else you provide in the desktop edition.
Why don't implentment this feature?? Please give us a reason
Redirect Console output into txt file. Necessary for e.g. the Show Cisco tech support. This command creates a lot of output on the shell and copy&paste will not work.
Shell output into a file make sense here. With putty i enable the logging in a text file and have similar results.
Same, need too. All my previous SSH/Telnet apps had this feature.
