    ​Hey, that means we dont have to install selenium extension on browser and we can use this desktop version?

    something I have been waiting for. So useful, Thanks so much. So much confusion about the licensing cleared. I see the $40 plan, is there one yr commitment or it can be cancelled after 2 months. although I have an office 355 developer account which Microsoft has been extending

    It is awesome, waiting to learn more on this.

    I have a doubt, as we have desktop flows now. Do we have the UI flows which we had previously with the selenium option?

    Hey Reza, Good day to you, This is Richard, i am continuously watching your session, just need you expertise for some project that we need to provide with Event Viewer. Step1 Type in the Event Viewer on the search tab, press enter Step 2: Double click Windows logs and click Application. Step 3 is the critical part that i cannot figure out. Client wants me to only get the "Error" without using the Filter logs. they want me to get the data for all Error for "Date and time", "Source" , "Event ID" and the message in "General" automatically save it to Excel file. what function in UI path do i need to use? filtering the log for error will have more or less 2899 datas that need to be extracted. Appreciate your help.

    Great Introduction (which is quite in depth and not so introductory) 😁
    BTW is there a way to UPLOAD a file to a web form? I have an Excel sheet I need to every once i a while import to a specific table in DataVerse (aka CDS) and I'd like to automate the process via PAD, but can't find the proper action to do that ?!
