TAP Release Notes 21.10

Tailent Automation Platform v21.10 extends the previously updated UI with more quality of life improvements as well as multiple fixes. The most notable addition is the new copy&paste functionality that allows users to quickly duplicate and reuse automation logic - which is tone with our mantra of automation through reusability.

New features

Copy & Paste functionality

TAP Studio now offers support for copy and pasting elements within your automation diagrams. This feature is really flexible as it supports copying and pasting elements that have intricate relationships and parameters. Virtually any entity or collection of entities (through multiple item selection) can be copied and pasted:

  • Complete sequences - all actions will be replicated accurately down to every parameter value

  • Transitions - selecting multiple sequences as well as transitions between them can be easily copied.

  • Invoke Blocks - workflow invocation blocks can also be copied and pasted.

Relationships between sequences and invoke blocks are preserved as shown in the picture ve. abo

The windows clipboard system is used for storing action data, which is serialized in plain text format. This makes it easy for users to quickly copy and paste between automation solutions or workflows and also allows for easy sharing of action data online (email, ticketing systems, email, instant messaging etc.).

Performance and stability improvements

In our quest to offer TAP users the best possible experience, we have included multiple performance and stability enhancements, ranging from Bot execution performance (startup and workflow running times) and TAP Studio quicker load times to enhanced stability for both
