Power Automate desktop app > Web Page > populated text field

Hi Experts,

 

My goal is to launch web app (Dynamics 365) and create new contact by using Power automate desktop app(web recorder). I'm able to record my process but flow getting failed when it gets to text field. flow was not able to input the text field. I have used  Power Automate desktop app > Web Page > populated text field command to insert the data. I have created Input variables and given sample data and placed that variables at the text. Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

I think UI elements were not picked properly. Can you try picking elements one more time?

Hi @sakula1996 ,

Thanks for the tip now I'm able to insert the text but when flow moves to next text field previous filled text field data getting removed.  for example : flow entered first name text field and moved to last name text field and entered last name(at this status first was removed). Do you have any suggestions for me to avoid this situation ? I tried manually and I'm not seeing this behavior 

 

Thanks

Hi @Shashankpuli ,

Are you using Desktop Recorder? Probably you might have duplicate action which is setting value to empty.

To better assist you, can you please send the screenshot of the flow and website?

Hi @sakula1996 

 

Yes Im using PAD(webrecorder) ....I figured it out why its happening I managed with simple mouse click action. question is when setting text field value is it mandatory that we have to click on the field. I know when we do manually we click on text field and enter data but for automation also we have to set mouse click action for every field ???? thank you so much for quick response 🙂

hey ,  I have used two commands to enter data in D365(fields)

 

1. Focus text field

Set the focus on an input element of a web page and scroll it into view

2. Sendkeys

Sends keys to the application 

Capture.PNGHi @Shashankpuli  and @sakula1996 I wonder if I could just confirm this, since I am having the same problem.   

I am using 

1. Focus text field on web page

2. Send keys

But it doesn't seem to populate. 

 

The replies mention a mouse click? Which type of mouse click?   Where in the steps?  Instead of or in addition to. 

 

Any help would be appreciated 🙂

The great thing about send keys is you can send special keys like tabs—so if you figure out the tabs between the fields you want to populate, you can fill them all out in one step
