Unattended RPA flow running successfully but Im not seeing actual process executed

Hi Experts,


Hope you are doing well.


I have automated creating new contact process in Dynamics365 and I ran in unattended mode  and system shows flow executed successfully but I'm not seeing new contact in my application[D365] but when I ran in attended mode it executed well and I can see new contact in D365. Any suggestions what I'm doing wrong while running in unattended mode.

@Shashankpuli Just out of curiosity - can you try to run Take screenshot action in unattended mode? If it fails, it would mean that the virtual screen is not enabled during the unattended run. Also try Window Focus / Activate right before the send keys action.

@MichaelBoruta @johnaustin  Yes, Take screenshot action failed in unattended mode, How to make sure virtual screen is enabled while running flow in unattended mode.
