Assignment 2 On Element Appear Timeout

I am working on Advanced Training Assignment 2: Generate Yearly Report and I am stuck on getting the dispatcher process to work.

The ‘On Element Appear’ activity that the walkthrough tells us to set up keeps timing out. The weird thing is that when I do a debug stepthrough, it executes the activity, goes on to scrape the data from the table and then goes to close the activity and that’s where is sticks and causes a timeout.

I thought it was having issues finding the element, but the fact that it scrapes the table suggests otherwise. Anyone have any ideas how to get it to work?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi @Foehl

Set repeat Forever property to false



@PrankurJoshi You, sir, are an absolute legend! I’d spent about an hour scratching my head on that one.

If I could, I’d give you a biscuit :smiley:

So what does the repeat forever option do?

It does this

I figured that much out :joy: But it’s an explanation that leaves me with more questions than answers:

  • How often does it repeat?
  • Is the boolean output updated after each repetition?
  • If it found it the first time, why doesn’t it find it the second time?
  • Why would anyone want to repeat this forever?
  • Why is this option enabled by default?
