  • Integration with Task Mining is available so you can export any trace from Task Mining to Task Capture for more adding more details and generating better documentation.
  • Integration with Assistant is available providing you with an additional entry point to Task Capture.


  • Managing Word Templates is now easier with the help of our new interface change and support of uploading custom templates in .docx format.
  • Working with Diagram Elements is improved, adding Element Properties. For Sequence, Decision, Events and Swimlanes, you can now set descriptions and styles (Fill Color, Outline Color, and Font Color).
  • Diagram Elements can now be copied/pasted from one instance of Task Capture to another. This way you can combine different projects based on your needs by having multiple files opened simultaneously.
  • Title change is now possible for event (Start, End) elements.
  • Frequently used command options can now easily be accessed from a new context menu in actions, diagram editor elements, and templates for Microsoft Word.
  • If you are signed-in in Studio or Assistant, Task Capture will automatically sign you in using the same account if the app wasn't activated or the activation expired.
  • You are encouraged to share your feedback directly from the application by rating the application and answering a question.
  • "Capture actions now" link is removed from the sequences on a diagram image exported to Word and saved as an image.
