Record keyboard actions

Hello

I’ve downloaded the trial and I am trying to build a very simple process by recording. For some reason, my keyboard actions have not being recorded while the mouse clicks are just fine.
Would like to get some help please.

Thank you very much!
Lior.

@111178 try using the Type command. If you are actively recording and you want to record your keyboard:

Click Escape to bring up the recording menu
Click Type in the recording menu

Select where you want to type and enter your desired value

click enter

the recorder will type the text in for you and you can then resume recording

Hi
Welcome to uipath community
Usually all the process can’t be completely automated with recording option
At some times we may need to do some manual automation as well
This is one of the best example for that buddy
So to include keyboard activities in our automation process we may need to get out of recording and perform manually, by including the activities from activity panel to the sequence we have designed so far in the design panel In studio
—so to include key board activity like SEND HOT KEY activity search for the same in the activity panel and drag them to the design panel in the middle
—then mention the hot keys we want to be performed and once after that we can again continue with the recording process so that it will continue with the steps where we are now

Hope this would help you
Kindly let know for any queries or clarification
Cheers @111178

Hi Dan
Thanks for answering.
Is there no way to record the keyboard actions just like the mouse clicks?

Thank you

Hi

One more question please.

I tried for example send a shortcut of Ctrl+C after I’ve selected an excel cell. Nothing happened. What did I do wrong?

Thank you

Thanks! I tried with capital and didn’t understand why it doesn’t work :slight_smile:

I see that I have to click on the field which I want to send the hotkey to. Can I somehow skip this step? I mean - I want to send the hotkey without choosing a field before.

Thanks!

Hi

Can you please tell me how? After I check “Type”->“send hotkey” it is requiring me to select an element.

Thanks
