Hello @Swapnil_Meshram,
for working with the new tab, place the new tab activities inside a attach browser activity!

Did you try if sending hotkeys like ctrl+tab or ctrl+shift+tab works in your case?

Thanks,

In that case, as mentioned above by Rishab, did you try this with ‘Attach Browser’ activity?

Just as an example if you are trying to implement the below flow in a browser that has 2 tabs open both having a text box and a button, you can implement it as below:

  1. Add an Attach Browser activity and Indicate Tab 1.
  2. Place your ‘Type Into’ activity within the attach browser activity and indicate textbox from tab 1.
  3. Add another Attach Browser activity and Indicate Tab 2.
  4. Place your ‘Type Into’ activity within this attach browser activity and indicate textbox from tab 2.
  5. Add another Attach Browser activity and Indicate Tab 1 again.
  6. Place your ‘Click’ activity within this attach browser activity and indicate button from tab 1.
  7. Add another Attach Browser activity and Indicate Tab 2 again.
  8. Place your ‘Click’ activity within this attach browser activity and indicate button from tab 2.

Workflow will automatically switch between tabs as per the elements it identifies to work with. Let me know if that makes sense.

Thanks,

@Rammohan91 Thanks will try it…how do force activity to run again if fails? If fails 3 times it should log error messages and exit flow.
