Control Room update (2021-08-18)

August 18, 2021

Process & work item UX improvements:

  • Separate tab has been added for unresolved process runs.

Unresolved tab

  • Duration counter has been removed from process runs. The counter was causing confusion about billing and unnecessary sense of urgency especially in the context of unresolved process runs which could in some situations just be ignored.
  • Statistics view now shows 10 processes.
  • Option to mass mark multiple work items as done has been added to work data explorer. This can be used to quickly resolve multiple process runs in situations where less detail and consideration is needed for handling exceptions, e.g. development processes.

Mass complete

Process view redesign & work data explorer:

  • Process views have been redesigned to better support upcoming workforce features and process operation by non-technical business users.

Process view redesign

  • Search functionality has been added to conveniently search through process runs.
  • New work data explorer has been added, which can be used to interact with work items, e.g for retrying or marking failed work items as complete.

Data Explorer

Workforce functional changes:

  • New process run state is added called "Pending". When processing of work item related to the process run fail, the run transitions to “Pending” state awaiting for manual interaction.
  • Process run is considered complete, after all failed items are either retried successfully or manually marked as complete. Retrying or modifying failed items keep them in the original process run context.
  • Pending runs have a rolling timer until completed, which does NOT count against billed run minutes. (only robot execution time is counted)
  • New functionality should be backwards compatible with old implementations, in case of undesired behavior please contact our customer success immediately.

Run minute and value generation metrics:

  • Metrics and graphs to track used run minutes and value generated by processes have been added. Note that run minute metric is indicative, and ground truth can be found from cost management.
  • Value generated per successfully completed work item can be set from the process configuration.

Value generated configuration
