Running a Task Within a Task

This sample task will illustrate how AutoMate can start other tasks from within a "Parent" task by using the 'Start Task' action. This is especially useful for code reuse so the same code does not have to be written over and over again, rather, one task can be created and called repeatedly.

This is also useful if you wish to run numerous tasks sequentially without overlapping. This method is more time efficient and alleviates the need to create a schedule for each task. Please import all three sample tasks to your 'Task Administrator' by using 'File' -> 'Import.'
