Should the task be recorded in Automation Anywhere?

0 votes

In Automation Anywhere I recorded a task that opens a program from Start Menu > Programs and while running the task, the menu to open that program has moved. Do I need to re-record the task? When I try to run this task it clicks on the wrong program name and hence opens a wrong program.

Hi, I don't think there is a need for you to re-record your task.

The SMART Automation Technology built into Automation Anywhere provides a powerful feature that lets you use your original task.

You can check an option from Tools > Options >'Move Icons/Menus'.

After selecting this option when you run a task it opens the same program that was opened while recording even if the menus have moved.
