How do I interact with the Studio X interface?

Here are some of the highlights of how you can use the UiPath StudioX Interface depending on your automation goals:

  • The Activities Panel

Depending on the automation project you need to create, there are several activities you can choose from, in the Activities Panel. To help you identify different types of activities quicker, the left border of each activity has the color of the application it applies to. For example, Excel activities have a green left border, while Outlook. activities have a blue left border.

  • The Application Cards

The Application Cards contain the scope of the application that is being automated. They give you context and filter the activities which can or cannot be added to a certain scope. Each card is represented by a specific icon and has a short description to help you identify quicker which card you need in your project.

  • Designer Panel

Everything comes together in the Designer Panel. The entire automation project is represented by a diagram that offers a visual representation of the sequence of activities inside.
