Hi All,

I am having some difficulty using the element exists and after that an IF activity.

Basically I am using the site Linkedin to scrape data…the issue is I keep getting thrown to a LinkedIn package premium buy webpage (think Linkedin knows a robot is being used). This happens very randomly sometimes when i log in via the robot, other times when I am searching for things via the robot. Its is a random occurence so i cannot predict this.

The undesired webpage actually only allows me to go back to the start (initial homepage) which is fine as I can just tell the robot to do the whole flow again (i think…)

My question is can I use the element exists in combination with the IF activity throughout the workflow incase the robot is thrown into that webpage and I need to get out of it? Is this at all possible? So basically it can monitor the workflow the whole time to see if that webpage ever occurs?

**Quick note: the undesired webpage sometimes shows multiple times. For instance if I manage to go back to the homepage it throws me back to that undesired page instantly as soon as the homepage has loaded.

Thanks
