PII Masking

Task Capture detects the pattern of the typed keystroke and masks sensitive information (, names, email addresses, etc) with the * symbol and for numeric inputs (phone numbers, dates, etc) with 99999. It's recommended to verify the activities in your exported Studio projects.

Studio compatibility issues

Exporting to a folder in which there's an existing Studio project, or a project exists in any of the parent folders can create confusion and Studio might pick up the initial project.json file and the corresponding dependencies which might be different than those needed by Task Capture exported XAML file. This causes errors when opening the Task Capture exported XAML file in Studio.

It's recommended to choose a new folder when saving a XAML project file to avoid compatibility issues. In the pop-up window, you can choose to export to the current folder or pick another folder, using the dialog box.
