Pause the automation while user interacts and resume the process after interaction is completed

Hi. I am building a process where I have a sequence of actions that the robot should handle and when this first sequence is done the next sequence shall not start before the user say so. The thought behind this pause is that the user has to interact with application for some input and when this is done I would like the robot to take over. Does anyone know how to set a “pause” activity between to sequences? In the picture marked with yellow is where the pause activity is thought to be set. Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

Hello @Haakon.Villalpando ,

You can use a Custom Input activity .Then sequence will wait for your Input. Else you can use a Message box activity.

Hey @Haakon.Villalpando

There are two ways in doing this…

  1. To use Runtime IO activities

  2. Long running process

First option will make the program wait for user input utilising all system resources.

Whereas second option will help release the resources and the bot itself for processing any other job in the meantime.

for higher level UiPath has the concept of Orchestration Process -

on small level within an attended process we can set the execution to pause e.g. with a message box or any other interuptions (form, custom input)…

Hi. Can you please guide me on how to setup these Runtime IO activities as this is uknown for me.
Thanks in advance.
