When you have completed your action sequence, you need to stop, test and save it.

  1. Click Stop File:Success_Center/New_Articles/WPM-MT/040/010/060/03000018_14x13.png.

Testing the recording

You can play the entire recording or step through it. During the playback, the Player times how long it takes each steps to run. This information is used later to calculate typical timings for the recording.

The Recorder automatically tests the recording when you save it.

Playing the recording:

  • Click Play File:Success_Center/New_Articles/WPM-MT/040/010/060/03000019_18x18.png. The recorder will play the entire sequence.

Playing the recording step-by-step:

  • Click Step File:Success_Center/New_Articles/WPM-MT/040/010/060/0300001D_17x15.png. The recorder will play the next action in the sequence and then pause. Repeat for each step.

Saving the Recording:

If you are connected to the WPM server, you can save your recordings directly to the server.

The Recorder automatically tests the recording by playing it back when you save it. The Recorder also presents you with the option to open the Web Console to create a transaction from your new recording.
