Discover Task

Timeline provides a powerful tool for quick task defining. The Discover task allows you to choose the forms you want to include and instantly create a task with them. You can experiment with multiple tasks without thoroughly configuring each of them.

Each time you launch one task wizard, you can create a definition for 1 task. Use this tool to identify tasks quickly and proceed with analysis. Create several slightly varied definitions for the same task to see which will be easier to automate. For example, a user places orders. One of the task definitions may include Outlook forms, where the user gets order details. The other task definition may not include these forms, considering this step as optional for the process. Compare the resulting tasks to see how the presence or absence of forms influences the process complexity.

How to discover task

  1. Click Discover task at the bottom of Task editor.
    You will see the list of forms across all uploaded logs. Near each form you will see the number of times it appears in logs.

  3. Enter the task name at the top of the window.
  4. Click Create task.
