Advanced Training - Generate Yearly Report - Hang up on download monthly reports


I’m working on the processor piece of the Generate Yearly Report assignment and I am having some trouble with my “System1_CreateYearlyReport” process. It will select the first month quickly and download/process the report just fine, but will take up to 2 minutes to identify the “Month” selection box and/or the “Download” button when it tries to download the next month’s report. I have played with my selectors and they are exactly as the documents show they should be, I’m not sure what the problem might be as the process runs smoothly through January and gets caught when it transitions to the next month.

When I originally developed this at home it was taking around 1 minute and 30 seconds to iterate through all 12 months and now it takes over 2 minutes to get one month. I’ve spent time looking through other people’s questions but I’m not finding anything about hang-ups and my selectors match those that have been recommended. Does anyone have any idea what I might be able to try to speed this up?

Here’s a screenshot of my selector for the month drop down box:

Additionally, I have just noticed that it does not get hung up when I use default values for my arguments… Not sure how that correlates.

Hi, thanks for your response. I have solved the issue of the month selection taking quite a while by refreshing the page in the loop each time. Inconvenient, but solved the problem.

I am now running into an issue where it will process the entire first “transaction” successfully, but when it begins to process the second one it is, again, taking up to or over 2 minutes to identify elements, this happens inside of the Navigate to Dashboard, Navigate to Work Items, Extract Vendor Information, etc.

I’m just really confused as to why there is no latency the first time it runs through, but when it moves to the second transaction item it begins to get very slow. Any idea?

Here is the CreateYearlyReport workflow that I have created. I am at the end of my rope with this - really do not understand how this is having so many problems after processing the first item so smoothly.

I think we are in very different time zones but if I happen to see the email come through that someone has replied, I will try to get on so maybe we could discuss in real-time. Thank you so much for your consideration in helping me.

I had more or less the same issue and solved it by editing the WaitForReady option as suggested in the below post:
