Please note: We will shut down the Helpdesk soon. Please update your releases to Hyland RPA 22.2. To view the latest documentation for Hyland RPA 22.2 release visit Hyland Docs.

The Workspace displays the automation project structure and its activities. You can double-click on the elements to navigate through the workflow or to view additional activity properties.



Hyland RPA distinguishes between activity types (1) and scope activities (2). Scope activities are a container for additional activities. Common scope activities are:

  • Open Application
  • Open Browser

Navigation within the automation project is possible using the breadcrumbs below the workflow tab.



Context menu

You can access the context menu by using left click on the selected activity. Hyland RPA´s context menu offers various actions that can be performed on the activities within the Workspace. The following actions are available in the context menu:


Action Description
Open Navigate to the scope or activity details.
Cut Cut the activity.
Copy Copy the activity.
Paste Paste the activity.
Delete Delete the activity.
Annotations Add, edit or delete annotations.

Pop-ups and dialogs

For most of our activities, we offer a pop-up whenever the user drops an activity into the Workspace. These pop-ups enable the user to easily enter the required properties. Pop-ups include all properties that are required for successful execution.

The below example shows the next illustration and an overview of available pop-ups for the Set Text activity.

You can either set up the input text directly (2) or store the entered text in a variable (1). This can be done using an existing variable or by creating a new one.



To access the pop-ups again, select the activity and use the context menu option Edit Variables or CTRL+ALT+V.
