Flow stop hotkey not working

Hello everyone.

 

I have tried this on multiple computers, trying multiple hotkeys, the default one, even simple key F12, nothing works. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Thnx.

the hotkey only works when running a flow from PAD's My Flows page, not while debugging which is what I'm assuming you're doing.

 

This is honestly a bit silly imo as well, they really should make it work while debugging.

So, Ctrl + Shift + T isn’t working to pause the flow?

 

what’s the bigger picture? Are you trying to do manual things during the flow?

 

if I have something manual to do during a flow, say a manual validation of a document before I let the bot email is, I will use a message box to pause the bot. In the message box, I write what the user is supposed to do before clicking ok, and then ok will continue the bot. 

best of luck. 

We have this reeeealy old legacy data management system, and I tried to automate data extraction from it. I take cell info from Excel, add to clipboard, then past to the input box and click on few things. But this isn't the only flow, every other, even test one which had like one action doesn't stop with the hotkey. I do use a message box as a temporary solution, but would like to stop the flow only when something goes wrong (something which can't be implemented through error checking).

 

So yeah, I guess this is a bug.

Oh wow, yes it is. Thanks a lot. I have a tendency to run the flows from the inside, so that I don't have to wait for it to load in case I need to change something. But yeah, curious why they didn't make it work in debug.
