  1. Excel Refresh Data Sources Action

    I would like to see a native Foxtrot action that will refresh all data sources or specific data sources within Excel without having to send Excel keyboard shortcuts.

  2. Action over Action PowerShell Sessions

    Action over Action PowerShell Sessions

    Advanced>Programming>PowerShell

    It would be a positive if we could choose to not terminate the PowerShell session after action execution. This would allow us to embed header modules in precursor actions and then follow up with the function call in successive actions. This would also allow variable passing (PowerShell) action over action.

    Action 1: Header

    function zero($a) {
    if ($a -eq 0) {
    return $true
    }
    else {
    return $false
    }
    }

    Action 2: Function call

    $checkzero = [%ZeroCheck]

    RPAEngine.SetVar "WasItZero" $(zero $checkzero)

    -brandon

    EDIT:
    Opened a case with Nintex over "Not Responding" issue

    I believe…

  4. Ability to build a front end for the user

    I would like Foxtrot to have the ability to build a front end for the end user to run the scripts without having the overview of the actions running step by step. They have no idea what that screen is. All they care is if the script had reached the end point and their job is done.

    I as an admin would like to manage the scripting in the back end and provide end users with more like a form(front end) where they just play the script.

  6. Format Cell (Row) action - combine multiple options

    Combine border combinations within Format Cell (row) action. Right now it is only possible to use one option. If you create a second action - it will overwrite the previous setting

  7. update credential on multiple jobs at once.

    I would like to have the ability to update the credentials just once and it feed over to all my scripts. Currently when my password expires for windows I have to go in and update all my scripts so that I can send out emails. If it could be updated on the hub and then it feed into the scripts or if when an email is triggered in the scripts that it pull in the email credentials from the hub to send out the scripted email.

  8. File exists function improvement

    A checkbox to allow wildcards, but that disables other filters in exchange.
    Or a new function, "files exists".

    Our real world scenario has to do with Microsoft Print to PDF, if a document follows a recently spooled document too closely, then pages from the previous document can replace pages in the second document. You have to wait for *.TMP files to clear in the spooler directory.

    Powershell.

    while (($files | Out-String).length -eq 0){
    $files = Get-ChildItem -Path C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS*.tmp
    start-sleep -s .01 | Out-Null
    }

    while (($files | Out-String).length -gt 0){
    $files = Get-ChildItem -Path C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS*.tmp
    start-sleep -s .01 | Out-Null…

  9. More Image Manipulation Actions

    Add things such as 'Pixelate Image' or 'Blur Image'. When taking screenshots of screens with sensitive data, these types of actions will be helpful when trying to redact secure content. Right now, a work around would be to open the image in Microsoft Paint, and perform a series of keystrokes/mouse sequences to 'mask' data.

  10. Conditional IF statement to variables

    It would be nice if I could add a conditional statement block similar to the attached that would assign a variable, or multiple variables based on a data point (from Excel for example).

    If Cell A1 equals salad then assign "vegetarian" to variable txtFoodPref.

    This would be useful in a couple applications I currently have, and simplify the task list quite a bit, instead of checking for each possibility.

  13. List Enhancement - Copy Row

    When creating a list, it would be helpful if you have the ability perform the following when the list is in Edit mode:

    Copy/Clone Row
    Paste/Insert Row

    When manually building large lists, this would be helpful.

  14. FoxHub Job export/import

    Recently, the computer that I use to run FoxHub on had to be switched out. With that being said I had to go onto the new computer and setup all my jobs again. I would like to see the ability to export all jobs (schedule jobs, trigger jobs, loaded jobs.) and import them onto the new PC. This would also help in disaster recovery efforts.

  15. Additional Xperience Support

    A few SilverLake screens are not mapped to target as a table and become searchable. Currently each field is targeted individually. Please enhance Foxtrot to target as either an exact cell or table. (i.e. Automatic Allocation Maintenance)

  16. Additional Emulator Support

    Please expand your list of supported emulators (for Foxtrot) to include something that is made for a Unisys type A mainframe. Micro Focus has a Unisys emulator, which would be our preference, but at this point any supported emulator for our mainframe would be a huge step forward. Thank you

  17. Assign a job to multiple bots

    There is an option that allows to assign a job to multiple bots but it will still be run by a single bot.
    Would be nice to have an additional option to set up a job to run on all selected bots (so if I wanted to run the same job on 100 machines at the same time) for cases when using Data Job is not possible.

  18. Write to Windows Event Logs

    Would it be possible to have Foxtrot write selectable and customizable events to the Windows Event Log? Launched, closed, ran task, ran error task, etc., or just write a custom event into the logs. This would open up a lot of options for using Task Scheduler to deal with Foxtrot, for example 'on Foxtrot Event ID 1234 (Project Started Running), launch screen recorder', 'on Foxtrot Event ID 2345 (Foxtrot Exited), end screen recorder process'
