UI Path Task Capture in 1 minute


What is it?

  1. Screenshot and documentation tool on Steroids.
  2. It can take a series of screenshots and generate documentation in Microsoft Word template.
  3. Just like Windows’ built-in Snip and Sketch or Snipping tool but, with Microsoft Paint & OCR capabilities.
  4. Installs locally, just like Snappy.
  5. This tool can spit out a skeleton for RPA developers.
  6. This is to RPA developer, what Gherkin/Cucumber is to a C#/Java developer.

Benefit hypothesis

  1. Target audience:
    • Agile: Business owners / Product owners
    • Waterfall: SME & BA
    • In short, those who need to create requirements for RPA developers.
  2. This way, instead of writing boring wordy SRS documents, RPA developers could be given bare bones skeleton of what is needed.

  3. Open saved workflow (*.ssp, *.ssg)
    • These files could be versioned in git or TFS
    • Allows collaboration
