UiPath Task Capture

The Task Capture Guide


UiPath Task Capture is a process discovery tool that helps you get detailed insights about automation candidates directly from your employees.

Once you identify potential automation candidates, with the help of this tool, your Subject Matter Experts can provide their expertise about the particular task, and help you maximize ROI from RPA.

Quick Overview

Working in the background, the tool captures the performed actions, takes screenshots with every mouse click, and collects smart data about the process statistics (execution time, number of actions, text entries, etc.).
You can edit and annotate each screenshot and add information for each step.

Based on the captured data, UiPath Task Capture builds a comprehensive workflow diagram and provides details about each step. You can easily customize the diagram or build your own from scratch.
Export the collected information to UiPath Studio as a workflow template (.xaml format) or present it as an insightful Process Definition Document (PDD).


  1. Data-driven approach– the app gathers the data required to identify automation opportunities and compile ROI assessment information from your Subject Matter Experts.
  2. Eliminate manual work – capture automatically and in the background the details for each step.
  3. Generate the necessary RPA documentation – based on the collected information, the app generates ready-made PDDs and automation prototypes.
  4. Flexibility – the tool works across the entire UiPath Platform and is a perfect fit for either top-down or bottom-up automation strategy.
