UiPath Task Capture

The Task Capture Guide

Main Workflow

To start capturing your processes and document your automation ideas, select one of the three available options:

  1. Capture Process - 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Open File from PC - open saved files created with Task Capture if you need to apply any updates. You can open .ssp or .ssg file formats.

Find below details about each option:

Capture Process

Execute the Process

Execute the process you want 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 the capturing process to avoid irrelevant data or finish the documentation process by clicking the corresponding buttons.**

Get a Detailed Workflow Diagram

As a result of the capturing process, a comprehensive diagram illustrating the workflow of the procedure is displayed.
Each Sequence contains the screenshots captured for every action made.

Simple Template

Click Simple Template to build your own diagram and then capture the required steps.

Build Your Own Workflow Diagram from Scratch

Create the structure of your process and define the specific steps to perform it.

Capture your Steps for Each Diagram Block

After you're done with creating the workflow diagram, choose a specific step and capture your actions.
The tool creates a screenshot for every mouse click and gets the smart metadata for each particular action.

Open File from PC

Reuse previously created files and update them as needed.
This is often used within the team as it enables employee cooperation. Files can be shared in order for each team member to add or change the information.
