Overview of Open file dialog Action

Automation Workshop includes Open file dialog Action, that requires user to indicate a particular (already existing) file on disk. The file name and path is stored as variable, that can be retrieved and used in subsequent Actions by using Variable Wizard.

Features & highlights:
  • Specify the filename and path in the middle of the Task execution.
  • Configure the Open file dialog Action to initially look for files in particular folder.
  • Create custom file masks to locate necessary files easier.
  • Use variables retrieved from other Actions to highly customize the Open file dialog window.
