Feature details

Users can automate many Windows desktop applications with a no-code, point-and-click approach. Users can easily record actions on a Windows desktop and then turn manual, repetitive steps into automated workflows.

Follow these steps to automate a Windows desktop application:

  1. Select My flows.

  2. Select the UI flows (preview) tab.

  3. Select New > Desktop app > Next.

    Select Desktop app

  4. Give your app a name and then select Next.

  5. Select the Recording card and then select Launch recorder.

  6. Select Record and then perform the steps you want to automate.

    Record the steps to automate

  7. Select Done.

    Complete the recording

The UI flows recorder captures mouse clicks and the keyboard input you enter while the recorder runs.

You can then test your UI flow and use it instead of performing the recorded steps manually.
