Overview of Input dialog Action

Automation Workshop includes Input dialog Action, that is designed to mediate basic human interaction with automated Tasks by requiring the manual input of some text, number, data or relevant value.

Input Dialog Action displays a message in a custom titled window and requires user to enter required value or confirm some pre-configured or automatically generated one. All three parameter fields, namely, Title, Message to display and Default value support dynamic values, thus providing an option for automatic rendering of entire Input Dialog window. Automatic value input upon user inactivity can also be enabled.

Features & highlights:
  • Allows streamlining user data into automatic flow of preconfigured Actions.
  • Can display data from Trigger or Action, some system data, text file or Variable Wizard values and ask for context relevant user input.
  • User input can be prepared automatically and just wait for user confirmation or, optionally, after expiration of specified amount of time the Action can continue automatically with predefined default values.
Usage examples:
  • Prepare and display data for sending, display it to user and ask to confirm or change the recipient's address.
  • Ask user some value such as number, address or text and run the Task with user provided parameters.
  • Design a Task which can rerun itself with different, user-provided parameters if some error occurs.
