Introduction to Task Design

1. Enter the Design interface using the top menu:


2. The Design UI looks a lot like a web browser. In the navigation bar, enter the URL of the page where you want the task to begin.



3. When the page has loaded, click on the Tags button in the right-hand menu to inspect any existing tracking calls. This is optional. You can skip to the next step if, for example, you want to add checks for tracking calls that do not already exist.



4. Click on the Checks button to define a parameter check. Here, you can also pick from existing tracking calls, or use the + buttons at the bottom of the prompt to define arbitrary parameters. When you're happy, press 'Done'.



5. Verify that your check has been added to the list of checks for this step. Now, it's time to design a more advanced check. Click on a page link and you will see details about your action appear in the Actions queue. You can queue up one or more page interactions. Note that some interactions may reveal dynamic page elements, in which case you will need to commit them before those elements are revealed.



6. Once you have pressed "Commit", your interactions have been performed and you are taken to the next step. At this point, you should be able to see any tracking calls that were made as a result of your page interactions. You can check parameters on those calls in the same way that you did at steps #3 and #4:



7. Now, save your task. Optionally, perform a quick test directly from the Design interface. This test allows you to see how the task performs during an automated run.
