Complete Changelog

Improvements

Studio Pro

  1. New activity in the ‘Browser’ group - ‘Select list item’. Its behavior is similar to ‘Select list item’ activity present in the 'Desktop Apps’ group. It extracts available options for the specified dropdown list and selects a value chosen by the user. Please note that only standard HTML dropwdown lists are supported.
  2. Added possibility to submit a form in ‘Input to desktop app’ and ‘Input to browser’ activities. There is a new checkbox option called Submit request/form after typing. It makes it possible to simulate pressing a specific key or key combination (for example, Enter or Ctrl + Enter ) to send a form after filling an input field. For example, this could be used to submit a search request using a search string.
  3. Add a screenshot of the element picked by Browser Picker. Much like when picking an element with Desktop Picker, a screenshot of the element will also be created when using Browser Picker. This screenshot will also be shown as a preview of the element.
  4. Return triggers data when using ‘File trigger’ and ‘Email trigger’ activities. Now these activities will return specific data based on the set parameters.
  5. Appearance parameter: Wait for any file to appear and Wait for a specific file to appear features return the full path to the file.
  6. Disappearance parameter: Wait for the folder to become empty feature does not return anything. Wait for a specific file to disappear feature returns the file name.
  7. Expanded Office365 - ‘Read Emails’ activity options. This activity has been expanded with additional options present in the ‘Read emails’ activity from the ‘Emails’ group. Now it also has such parameters as Filter by status, Filter by content, Attachments and Mail folder name.
  8. Improved ‘Block Input’ activity. Now this activity distinguishes whether it’s the input was made by the or by an interface-related activity. This means that users will not be able to interrupt bots when executing input-related activities.
  9. UX/UI improvements:
  10. A new overwrite dialog when trying to add duplicate credentials. Now if a user attempts to create new credentials and input the data already present in other existing credentials, a dialog window with overwriting confirmation will appear.
  11. Added ‘Cut’ editing feature. In addition to copying, the toolbar and Edit menu now contain a feature that lets users cut activity blocks when editing workflows.
  12. Shift focus to the newly created block when copying an activity block. Now upon pasting a copied activity block the focus will be shifted to the newly created block.
  13. Added possibility to close the first Studio Pro tab without opening a new one. It is now possible to close a tab with an opened workflow even if this is the only tab opened at the moment.
  14. Small adjustments of the upper menu. Tabs order in the toolbar now corresponds to the order of the tabs in the ‘Settings’ menu; ‘Setting’ and ‘Account’ tabs were inverted; added hotkeys and icons.

Bot Runner

  1. Possibility to set Bot Runner name when publishing a bot to Orchestrator. Now it is possible to set a custom name for Bot Runner assigned to the published workflow. It will be displayed in Orchestrator interface.
  2. UX/UI improvements:
  3. A new overwrite dialog when trying to add duplicate credentials. Now if a user attempts to create new credentials and input the data already present in other existing credentials, a dialog window with overwriting confirmation will appear.
  4. Performance options tab was renamed to Execution.
  5. Warnings text color was changed to yellow.

Orchestrator

  1. Possibility to create a few schedules for a single workflow. With this change a new tab containing a list of schedules was added. On this tab, you can add a new schedule, edit an existing one, pause and delete it.
  2. It is now possible to delete unused Bot Runners from the list. This is a new option in Bot Runners table. It is only possible if this Bot Runner is not executing a workflow at the moment.
  3. Rearranged Activity logs menu. Now this menu is called Runs history . It displays the time, launch status, launch type, duration, user name and the assigned Bot Runner. All the columns can be sorted.
  4. Improved launch time display. Now the launch time will be displayed both in GMT and local time.
