Can my robot fill out a form or perform an action before extracting data?
The short answer: Yes, absolutely!
The long answer: Your robot learns every action you perform while recording your task. This includes all your clicks and form inputs that you fill. On top of that, it will automatically turn any form inputs that you filled into a dynamic input parameter that you can adjust every time the robot is run.
You can also create multiple monitors on the same robot, each with a different input parameter.
