Overview of Question dialog Action

Automation Workshop includes Question dialog Action, that mediates user interaction with automated processes and allows deciding the Task execution scenario based on user choice.

The Action displays a question or any other text in a custom titled question dialog window and requires user to choose from Yes, No and Cancel options. Both question window title and contents can be either preconfigured with fixed values (same question always) or generated automatically by using dynamic variables from Triggers, other Actions, text files or system parameters (context-dependent question text).

A graphical icon can chosen from the list of available options to visually emphasize the question dialog window. Depending on user selection, the Task can be continued normally, continued with particular Action, simply stopped or stopped with error.

Features & highlights:
  • Shows a graphical window on screen and requires user interaction.
  • Can automatically continue with default preset if user does not press the button during specified period of time.
  • Set the Action execution order within the Task, upon user choice with automatic expiration option.
