Actionaz is feature rich task automation tool. It allows you to automate actions that act upon the windowing system of the operating system. It also allows you to automate actions that act upon computer devices. Likewise , the actions that act upon the operating system, script execution and data can also be automated by it.
You can know in detail about the list of actions that can be automated by actionaz from here.
All action lists you create in Actionaz are called Actionaz scripts and all the actions are sequentially executed. You can enable or disable actions by clicking on checkboxes. A line number or a label is assigned to every action as its identification. A parameter list and an optional commentary can also be specified for each and every action. ]
You can also specify a pause duration before and after the action is executed. Similarly, you can also specify timeout durations for all the actions.
