Capturing Actions for Each Diagram Sequence

After you're done creating the workflow diagram, follow one of the below options, and add the relevant actions to each Sequence:

  • Use the option from the Sequence Editor. To do this, click the Start Capture button on the menu that appears when you click an empty Sequence.
  • From each Sequence, regardless if actions are added to it or not, click Capture Action Now in order to initiate the capturing process.

The capturing widget is displayed. For details about it check the Execute the Process section mentioned below.


The tool creates a screenshot for every mouse click and gets the smart metadata for each particular action. For details about the Sequence information access the Viewing and Editing a Sequence section.
