Capture a process

Before you start, click here for details of what Capture is, how it can help your process automation journey, and to see it in action.

Use Capture

When you open Capture, you can choose to capture a new process or work with one you have already taken.

Start capture 3.0

Open a saved process

  1. On the main screen, click Open to display a list of all saved processes and the dates they were created.

  2. Select the process you want to open.

    A preview of that process displays at the top of the screen so you can check it's the one you want.

  3. Click Open.

  4. You can also import processes using the Open file option.

Capture a new process

  1. On the main screen, click New capture.
  2. An information dialog displays.

    Capture info message. Capture controls have been added to the taskbar. Application Modeller data will only be captured if you set your monitor to 100% scaling.

    Capture supports up to two displays, and they must both have the same scaling value. For example, if you have a laptop and a separate monitor, select a scaling value (for text, apps and other items) in the Windows Display settings to change the scaling for both displays. Additionally, all displays must be set to 100% scaling to capture Blue Prism Application Modeller data.

  3. Click Close to close the dialog.
  4. The browser minimizes and a Capture icon appears in the system tray. Depending on your taskbar settings, this may appear in the bar itself or be hidden within the system tray.

    Capturing of the screen has not started at this stage.

  5. To start capturing, click the Capture icon and select Capture.

    The icon will change to a pulsing red circle indicating that the capture is in progress.

  6. Complete each step of the process you want to capture as normal.

  7. Click the Capture icon to pause, finish, or cancel the capture.

    If you select Pause the capturing process is paused, so any clicks or actions are not recorded.

  8. Select Finish to complete the capturing phase – the capture is automatically saved. You are then returned to the main Capture window, displaying the process you just captured.
