Automise is a general purpose automation tool for automating projects using a drag-and-drop graphical user interface. Automise provides over 350 built-in scripts to perform many common administrative actions. To automate administrative tasks, these scripts, called actions, simply need to be added to a project in the order in which they should be executed. Once a project is complete, it can be run with a single click, keystroke or automatically on a schedule.
Automise projects can also handle complex processes. Actions can be conditionally executed by using built-in flow control and exception handling. If a project doesn't run as intended, Automise provides a built-in debugger to diagnose problems and log files to give a detailed record for errors that occur. Automise includes ActionStudio to create a custom action with PowerShell, Python, JScript, VBScript or your favourite .Net language.
- Graphical Interface: Automise's graphical interface has been carefully crafted to balance functionality with usability. System Administrators will find automating Windows tasks in the structured graphical interface a breath of fresh air compared to scripts and batch files.
- 350+ Actions: Automise includes hundreds of pre-written scripts, called actions. Actions can automate file transfers; file and folder archiving; interacting with files & directories; administering Windows; and much more. You just fill in the details and Automise will do the rest.
- Flow Control: Automise features Try/Catch/Finally actions which enable you to use structured exception handling in Windows automation projects. It also provides If Then, Else, Switch/Case and Loop actions for controlling the flow of your project’s execution.
- Scheduling Tasks: Automise provides tight integration with the Windows scheduling service to allow automated Windows tasks to be run daily, weekly or whenever you wish.
- Logging: Output from every action run in a project is recorded to a project log. These log files make it easy to find issues with your project and can be exported for automated reporting and record keeping.
- Internet Actions: Your Windows automation project can automatically download and upload web content and communicate via email, ICQ, MSN and other on-line communication tools.
- Scripting Support: Each Automise action exposes a number of script events, where you have access to all the properties of the action using VBScript or JScript. In addition, the Run Script action and Execute Powershell Script action allow you to perform specific tasks which might not be covered by the built in action types.
- Variables: Using variables is the key to making your Windows automation projects dynamic. Use variables to pass information from one action to another and to enable actions to utilise user specific or machine specific values.
