Error handling

When the Task encounters an error Automation Workshop handles the situation according to predefined error scenario. Available scenarios include sending email report, running another Task to workaround the problem, writing in Windows System Event log or just disabling the Task until further evaluation.

Normally, the email part of On Error properties is first set upon configuring Task in Task Wizard reports properties.
