The UiRemoteRuntime works very well, really good work! I have some suggestions for additional functionality:
In “Open Application activity” we have the option to chose selector, which helps a lot when you work against RDC and Citrix because it makes the program open inside that session/window. This f.e opens Excel:
- Would it be possible to add something similar to for example “Excel Scope activity” to enable us to use Excel activities inside the Remote Desktop/Citrix?
This would helpful because we wouldn’t have to use clicks, copy, paste, and cumbersome data manipulation to work with excel on RDC/Citrix.
I guess it then could be enough to have Excel(O365) license on the target machine and not where you run nor develop the robot.
I am sure there are more benefits, if it is possible to implement!
- One step further would be to add a scope/attach where you again indicate the RDC/Citrix session, and all activities inside, targets that session/window. So, in an “assign activity”:
allFiles = “Directory.GetFiles("C:\Users\Public")”
would give the files in that folder inside the RDC/Citrix session.
Create/move/delete files, kill processes and other small, common task would work the same, inside the target session.
A lot of new updates this year, continue the great work!
