What is Studio Pro?
ElectroNeek Studio Pro is software where users create automation workflows. It makes use of the so-called visual programming concept - Studio contains various activities (such as “Click on element”, “Input from keyboard”, and more) that users need to drag and drop into the canvas. On the canvas, activities are represented with blocks that contain certain parameters. A combination of such blocks and their parameters is the resulting workflow.
What operating systems can Studio run on?
Studio can run on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, 2019. The main focus is on Windows 10.
How experienced a Studio user should be?
A Studio user should have knowledge of such basic programming concepts as variables, loops, conditions, data types, and similar. If the user has experience in development programs for production, it’s an advantage. Apart from that, the user should have an understanding of what the RPA area is and what is automation in general.
What is the result of a development process?
The result of a development process is a bot ready for operation. A bot is a set of activities placed according to the business process logic. Such bot can be exported to the .neex extension to run through ElectroNeek Bot Runner or published to ElectroNeek Orchestrator to run remotely and on schedule.
How does Studio work with credentials?
Users that need to store credentials in order to use them in their workflows can use the credential vault located at the Studio’s settings. The vault directly interacts with the Windows Credentials mechanism to store and address credentials.
Can a complex workflow be split into small separate workflows?
Not only can a large complex workflow be split into small pieces that can be run and tested separately, but it is a good practice to do so. The “Subprogram” activity is designed for that.
Can Studio Pro work simultaneously with Bot Runner on the same machine?
Studio Pro and Bot Runner are two different applications: they do not depend on each other. However, keep in mind that if Bot Runner is running some algorithm while you are working in Studio Pro on the same computer, your interaction with desktop applications, including Studio Pro, can disrupt the work of the bot. Bot Runner, which executes the algorithm, can also interfere with other applications: this depends on system resources, computer configuration, and other factors. We do not guarantee the stable performance of the platform when running the algorithm through Bot Runner and actively working in Studio Pro at the same time.
