Randomize mouse mouvement & speed

Hello all,

 

The mouse click feature is great but the movement generated is very linear and could be seen as unnatural (ex: bots) by some reporting tools.

Question 1:
How could I define a random X/Y position within some boundaries to avoid clicking on unwanted elements on the screen?

Question 2:
How could I define the mouse speed to go to that location? The three predefined speeds are too slow.

Thanks

Hey @Klintistwood 

 

You can generate two random numbers for the coordinates (x & y) that are within your boundaries, and use those in the 'Send mouse click' action like so:

Set the randomly generated numbers in "X" and "Y" :

You can define the movement speed from the settings of the "Send mouse click" action:

If you want to randomize this as well, you can generate another random number (lets say for 1 to 4) and then by using conditionals you can add the action with different speed settings.

 

So for example: 

If random number == 1 then run the "Send mouse click" action with a configured mouse movement style set to instant. 

else if random number == 2 then run the "Send mouse click" action with a configured mouse movement style set to Low speed

etc.

 

 

Hope this helped. Let me know if you need more assistance.
