Human-Bot Collaboration Version 11.3.4 Release Notes

Review the new features and known limitations in the Human-Bot CollaborationVersion 11.3.4 release.

Overview

The Human-Bot Collaboration feature in the Automation Anywhere platform enables real-time interaction between users and TaskBots.

An interactive chat bot alerts end users to make informed decisions or validations based on inputs received from other data sources. This has the following benefits:
