Always make sure to test all your projects after upgrading to the latest version of Foxtrot RPA! To ensure proper operation, all Foxtrot servers and workstations are required to run the same version. Upgrade the Foxtrot server first, followed by all Foxtrot workstations. Uninstalling will never delete Foxtrot scripts or databases.
- This version has a problem with creating a new Mouse Sequence. This has been fixed in the newer version.
FoxHub is a new application allowing you to centrally control your bots.
New Excel Actions
The following new Excel Actions have been added:
In Excel, calculates all workbooks now.
In Excel, sets the calculation mode.
When using a List, the Lookup is no longer case sensitive.
Reports have been improved in several ways:
- Fonts have been darkened for better visibility on screen and after being printed
- Note Actions now display the note text only once instead of twice
- Action notes now word wrap more reliably and do not run off the edge of the page
- Reports now display items in alphabetical order
- In previous versions, the Step Count displayed on each Task header in the Tasks Report displayed an incorrect value. This has been fixed.
Improved: List Preview
A preview has been added to the List view of the Expression Builder making it easier to see the results of a list lookup being created.
Improved: Send Email Action Editing
When editing a Send Email Action, the More view will be displayed if a value exists for one of the additional fields displayed in the More view.
Improved Message Hooking
A bug was discovered in the message hooking mechanism used by Foxtrot that prevented system messages from being sent to the next application in the hook chain while Foxtrot was running. This caused some third party applications to stop working while Foxtrot was open since those applications were expecting to receive a system message but never received it. This has been fixed.
Some third party authentication software solutions detects when a website or application displays a login screen then prompts the user to swipe their finger to log in. This bug prevented such applications from receiving the necessary system messages to know when to prompt the user to swipe their finger, leaving the user with no way to use the third party authentication software while Foxtrot was running. This has been fixed and these third party solutions will resume working properly.
Fixed: Search Cells Action
In previous versions, the Search Cells Action would not work properly if the target range was a single cell. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Decimal Variables
In previous versions, Decimal variables would erroneously round to whole numbers. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Open Folder Action
In previous versions, an Open Folder Action would fail to open the proper folder if the folder path contained a comma. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Excel Sheet Targeting
In previous versions, targeting the Sheet tabs in Excel 2013 or later would not behave consistently, sometimes missing the target. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Prompt Action
In previous versions, editing a Prompt Action would not display the Min setting properly. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Else Action Notes
In previous versions, users could not add a Note to Else Actions. This has been fixed.
Fixed: Missing Actions
This release also includes other minor bug fixes and usability improvements.
