the Task Builder
AutoMate provides an incredibly easy-to-use, drag-and-drop, intuitive interface for developing automation applications. The basic plain-English, drag-and-drop, fill-in-the-blank building blocks are used to build AutoMate Tasks.
The new Task Builder supports a customizable Available Actions list, multiple document support, find and replace, stack viewer and improved action search with filtering for quickly finding a desired action.
Triggers are objects that “watch” for specified system events or conditions to occur and cause a task to run as a result. You can set a trigger to automatically execute a task based on a schedule, when a change occurs on the file system, when an entry is written to the system event log or any of a variety of other events or conditions. When a task is triggeredthe steps in the task (comprised of actions) are executed.
Scripting Without Code
Never write another batch file or custom script again. That’s the promise of AutoMate. AutoMate enables sophisticated automation development without the need for writing and managing code. This greatly reduces development costs and timelines, and makes ongoing maintenance and management of automated tasks a breeze.
Event Log Monitoring and Automated Problem Resolution
Traditional Event Log monitoring solutions watch for problems and notify IT staff when a problem occurs. Some even allow a single program or batch file to be run. AutoMate takes Event Log monitoring a step further. With AutoMate, IT professionals can quickly build multi-step corrective action tasks. Problems are detected and automatically corrected without human intervention.
The key to this functionality is AutoMate’s visual task design system which allows IT professionals to build tasks via drag-and-drop without writing scripts, batch files or custom programs.
