To start capturing your processes and document your automation ideas, select one of the three available options:
- Capture Process - this mode allows you to run through the process while the tool automatically captures your steps, takes a screenshot with each mouse click and builds a workflow diagram based on the collected data.
- Simple Template - create your own workflow diagram with all the necessary steps, then use Explorer Expert to take screenshots for each action and automatically capture the required data.
- Open File from PC - if you already have a file created with the help of Explorer Expert which needs to be modified/reused, you can open it with the help of this option. Supports opening either
Let's look into each option one by one.
Execute the process you wish to automate, while the tool takes screenshots and collects smart data with every mouse click.
The small widget indicates the capture progress, presenting the number of captured steps and the associated screenshots. You can pause capturing to avoid any irrelevant data or finish the documentation process by clicking on the corresponding buttons.
As a result of the capturing process, you receive a comprehensive diagram illustrating the workflow of the procedure. Each Sequence contains a number of screenshots for every action made during the task.
Alternatively, click the Simple Template to build your own diagram and then capture the required steps.
Make use of our intuitive diagram editor to create the structure of your process and define specific steps to perform it.
After you're done with creating the workflow diagram, choose the specific step and capture your actions. The tool creates a screenshot with every mouse click and gets the smart metadata for each particular action.
This option allows you to reuse your previously created files and do the necessary modifications. It is often used for cooperation between employees - by sharing the file and making additions or changes.
