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: the interface has been crafted to balance functionality with usability
- 350+ built-in actions: includes hundreds of pre-written scripts, called actions. Actions can automate file transfers; file and folder archiving; interacting with files & directories and administering Windows.
- Logging: output from every action run in a project is recorded to a project log. These log files make it easy to find issues within the project and can be exported for automated reporting and record keeping.
- Scheduling Tasks: provides tight integration with the Windows scheduling service to allow automated Windows tasks to be run daily, weekly or whenever the user wishes.
- Advanced Flow control: features Try/Catch/Finally actions which enable users 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 their project’s execution.
- Internet Actions: automation project can automatically download and upload web content and communicate via email, ICQ, MSN and other on-line communication tools.
- Scripting Support: each action exposes a number of script events, where users 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 users to perform specific tasks which might not be covered by the built in action types.
- Variables: using variables is the key to making the 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.
