Review Forms

A Form is a part of the user interface of a web or a desktop application and controls within it, which a user interacts with. The program detects forms' boundaries using, for instance, interface redrawing or applications switching. For example, in order to send a parcel, a user fills in different order pages: enters the recipient data, selects the desired delivery date, and enters payment details. After processing the log with recorded user actions, the program finds 3 forms.

After uploading logs to Timeline, it is recommended to check forms for task definition quality improvement. Forms contain screenshots with associated user actions in the application. Check forms to make sure that unnecessary information will not appear in task definitions.

Note. If the Task Mining project contains a lot of forms or events in the forms, it can affect logs processing. Loading elements in Form editor and the Discover task feature can take some time.

How to review forms

  1. Click Form editor on the project overview page.
    You will see the list of used applications and forms defined for them. Hover over any task or application and click to rename them. To rename all web applications in logs to URL path or Domain name, use the slider at the top.
  2. To see applications and forms for a specific log, open the logs menu by clicking the dotted button and select a log from the list. To show forms and apps across all logs, click All logs at the top pane.
  3. Select a form in the list on the left. You will see screenshots illustrating certain user actions.
    Note. To search for a certain application or form, click and start typing the name. The program will highlight search results. You can perform a search both in Form editor and Task editor.
  4. Check the forms you are interested in. You may want to transfer some screenshots to a separate form to add or remove them from a task definition. Also, it can be useful to combine several forms into one for better task definition. Form editor allows to search for certain or similar events and move them between different forms or merge forms within one application.
