Through the Task Administrator, you can set error handling options that apply to all managed tasks. These settings specify what AutoMate should do if any managed task fails to run properly.
On the Task Administrator System menu, click Options.
In the General tab, select or clear the following boxes according to your preference:
If this is selected, an error message is displayed if Task Administrator is open at the time a task fails.
Select this to play a sound when a task fails. If you select this, use the open folder button to browse and select a wav file to be played on error.
Click the Task Errors tab (shown below) and enter your selections as follows:
Select this to have AutoMate send an e-mail message containing data about the task failure. Enter the specifications as follows:
To: The e-mail recipient. This must be a valid e-mail address (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org)
From: AutoMate uses this for the From field of the e-mail. Some mail servers require that this be a valid e-mail address (for example, email@example.com), while others allow any text (for example, "AutoMate on TestMachine")
Attach task file: Select this to have AutoMate attach a copy of the task file (i.e. the task steps) associated with the failing task. This file can be opened in any AutoMate Task Builder to investigate the cause of the error.
Select this to run another AutoMate Managed Task or AutoMate Task File (.aml file) upon error. For a managed task, select from the drop-down list. For an external task file, enter the path and file name of the .aml file.
