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.

On ErrorDetails
Disable this Task upon error occurrence Task is automatically disabled and does not become active until user enables it.
Write in Windows System Event log if error occurs Error message is written into Windows System Event log.
Run another Task if error occurs Another Task is executed upon error occurrence. Task name and error status can be accessed using Variable Wizard task parameters variables.
Send email when Task encountered an error If this is option is enabled, Automation Workshop sends email to predefined address with brief error description.

To set multiple recipients, use semicolon or comma-separated list:
  • one@example.com; more@example.net
  • John <john@example.com>, Jane <jane@example.com>

See a complete list of supported email syntax.


  • It is possible to adjust error reporting using Email notification templates.
  • Task name can appear in red, if Task has been moved, renamed or deleted.
  • On Error reports use SMTP server, that is specified in Automation Workshop Email options.
