How does Workfusion identifies an object. Does it capture properties while it records and tries to identy properties when executed ?

Hi @sampad_das_PwC2
Currently the RPA Recorder is not using object recording.This is however available in our flagship product - SPA.

The RPA Recorder uses surface-based (image-based) automation approach where the bot captures images of active elements while recording and tries to find the same images and click (hover, drag, scroll) on them while script execution.

Additionally, some system actions can be added when editing a workflow: opening applications, switching to a specific window, manipulating Excel files, working with Clipboard, etc.

In the future we will be adding this feature to RPA Express as well.
