Document Test Cases with Task Capture

Overview


UiPath Task Capture is a process discovery tool that helps you document your test cases to avoid manually downloading the images and typing titles for each of the included actions.

Working in the background, the tool captures the performed steps, takes screenshots with every mouse click, and collects smart data about the process statistics (execution time, number of steps, 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 Process Definition Document (PDD) in a .ssp, .docx and .jpg (diagram image) format that can be easily uploaded to Test Manager.

For more information, see Task Capture Introduction.
