Different Actions can experience different errors from minor issues to critical showstoppers. Automation Workshop supports advanced error processing and lets users choose which errors to ignore and which ones to process.
While in theory it is best to design Tasks in a way that their Actions do not cause errors, in specific occasions it can be more practical to design workarounds instead. If it is paramount that no errors occur, the user can set desktop and email alerts that call for immediate attention.
|Errors||A list of most common errors that the Action can experience. Disable errors to ignore them, when they occur. Disabled errors do not cause On Error behavior and are considered successful completion.|
|All other errors not listed here will cause On Error behavior, too||Choose whether less common unlisted errors are ignored or processed by On Error workaround procedure.|
Normally file system and memory errors should not be ignored, because they have a direct impact on automation processes and can disrupt them entirely.
Logic errors usually stem from faulty Task structures introduced by user when designing Task workflow. To solve these issues user can verify that the Task's workflow is properly configured.
Typically, Send email Action errors happen due to issues with local files or with email server.
Besides errors experienced by Actions themselves, sometimes errors are caused by external scripts and applications executed by Run group Actions. These errors are returned as exit codes or errorlevels.
