Settings

The Settings view contains the following options allowing each user to set up their preferences:

Recorded Apps

A list of the apps set up by the Company Admin to be recorded. These applications cannot be deleted.

By clicking Add App you can add only to your recording process other applications that you think are relevant. The added application is whitelisted automatically only for you. To make it available for the entire organization, the Company Admin needs to add it to the generic Recorded Applications list.

You can delete only the applications you added and that have not been moved by the Company Admin to the Recorded Applications list.

My Progress

Access this section to check the following:

  • Recording status: recording time, the data volume that has been recorded, number of screenshots, the status of recording.
  • Processing status: how many actions out of the total amount of recorded data have been processed.
  • Uploading Status: how many actions out of the total amount of processed data have been uploaded (if Continuous option was selected in Output configuration).

Note: Users should make sure that the desktop is plugged in during the recording. There is a possibility of data loss due to power shut down.

Proxy

Access the Proxy menu if you need to customize the proxy settings and facilitate the recording process to be initiated. Check out the Configuring the Proxy page for step by step guidance.

About

Check the Program name, its Version, and your Username, Organization, and Tenant. Also, you can Open the Logs folder if needed for troubleshooting and Logout from the Client App.

Show control panel switch

You can enable or disable the control panel display during the recording session.

Recording Data

The data is recorded by each invited user with the help of the Client App. This local application is installed on each user's machine and facilitates the recording process management.

The entire process is set up, started, and managed by the Company Admin in the Admin Console. After Installing the Client App you can continue working on your tasks as usual. Once it's started, the recording process is designed to work on the background and be as subtle as possible to not interrupt or disturb you in any way.

If enabled, you will see the Control Panel pop-up icon displayed on the right-hand side of the accessed pages/windows. As Task Mining is designed to capture the steps you make in certain applications the Control Panel icon will indicate this through a message and its color:

🚧

Warning

It is not recommended to have UiPath Studio open and running while using the Task Mining application.

  • If the icon is green it signifies that the application is being recorded.
  • If the icon is grey it signifies that the application is not being recorded. This is caused by the fact that the application was not added to the whitelist.

You can use the plus icon to whitelist an application and add it to the Requested Applications list.

When a browser page, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera is captured, the URL where the interaction occurs is also recorded to the CSV file as ‘BrowserURL’ property. This contains the full path of the page captured.

  2. Right-click on the Queue icon and select 'Close Queue'
  1. Right-click on the Recorder application and select 'Exit'
