How to Create a New Automation Project in TAP Studio

There are 2 possible ways to create a new automation project:

1. New Automation button from the ribbon menu

Click on the button "New Automation" from the ribbon menu, under the Design tab.

This button is available either from the home page, either when another automation project is already open.

A pop-up window will appear that requires us to set a solution name, workflow name, and a location for our project.

If another automation project is open and you clicked "New Automation" from the ribbon menu, a pop-up window will ask if you want to save first the current automation project.

2. "Create New Automation Solution" button from the canvas.

Once you launch TAP Studio and log in, the following home page will appear.

Click on the button "Create New Automation Solution" from the canvas.

The same pop-up window will appear that requires us to set a solution name, workflow name, and a location for our project.

In both cases, TAP Studio will create a folder to the selected location with 2 files: one with extension .tap and another one with extension .tapflow
