Universal Recorder for object-based automation
Use the Universal Recorder to record interactions, such as click, read (data extraction), and write (data entry), with user interface (UI) objects on the desktop, taskbar, or in an application or browser window.
The earlier Automation Anywhere RPA products such as Version 11.3 have three separate recorders to capture objects from various environments. Automation 360 combines the capabilities of these three recorders into the Universal Recorder to streamline the recording process.
Using the Universal Recorder
- To record a process consisting of multiple steps, use the Universal Recorder video camera icon, which is located on the
top-left of the workbench. Depending on where you want to add newly captured actions in an existing TaskBot, use one of the following ways:
Note: If you do not select any action, then the newly captured actions are added at the end of the TaskBot by default.
- To add newly captured actions below an existing action, select the existing action and then start recording.
- To add newly captured actions before the existing actions that are available inside another action, select the other action and then start recording. For example, if you want to add newly captured actions before the existing actions that are available inside a loop action, select the loop action and then start recording.
- To record a single interaction that you want to add into an existing TaskBot (for example, if you missed a step when recording a
task), use Capture action from the Recorder
