Properties Panel

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 Properties panel contains two of the most frequently used features of the Hyland RPA Designer (former AM Composer): the Properties and the Solution Explorer. The Properties contain all available properties for a selected activity. The Solution Explorer displays all available Workflow.xaml-files.

Solution Explorer

Solution Explorer is used to manage the project file structure. You can easily add or remove building blocks from the current project using the available toolbar. In addition, it is possible to add Microbots from the repository to the project.

Microbots are centralized workflow files stored in a company-wide repository. Changes to these Microbots can easily be pushed or pulled to reduce maintenance efforts and minimize development costs.

Please Note! See our article to read more about Microbots.


There are three options when adding a workflow to your project structure.


You can also right click on the BuildingBlock folder icon in the Solution Explorer and add the elements from there.
