Speed up recording (best 'wait for image' time frame)

I’m looking for ways to speed up my recording, as it’s taking over an hour to log in to a site and download an excel report (30 times).

I have put in place ‘wait for image’ between each step to ensure it doesn’t fail, would this be slowing it down? I thought that as soon as the image is there, it would progress to the next step but it seems to be slow.

Thanks in advance.

@clairemobbs once the image if found the bot moves to the next step without waiting for the whole period specified in the action, so it shouldn’t slow down the script that much. But have you tried removing these actions? Does the script fail in the case due to the slow website?

Thanks @ashapkina I didn’t think it would be the website though because when I do this process manually it is a lot faster?
Could these timeouts below slow it down?

No, it shouldn’t slow down it down as once the website is opened it moves on to the next action.

Does the script fail if you don’t use Wait for Image actions?

Yes from memory when I was building it and testing, it kept failing at different points until I put ‘wait for image’ for each step.
Could it be something else I should check in the process?

Use the Speed/Duration command
In the Timeline panel or Project panel, select one or more clips. Ctrl-click (Windows) or Command-click (Mac OS) clips to select a non-contiguous group of clips in the Project panel.

Choose Clip > Speed/Duration or right-click over a selected clip and choose Speed/Duration.

@clairemobbs unfortunately, I cannot recommend anything other than trying to set bigger timeouts for the actions that fail
