Web recorder - Next day cannot find objects

I have created found this happens on a few web automations:

  • pre-sales tasks, looping through popular website to build my network
  • making bids on a popular NFT site

For both, I will record steps on a web flow.   I can run it against several (sometimes hundreds) of assets/people and they work.  Then later that day or another day I will run and it says the screen element doesn't exist.  I can re-record that element and it works again.  


Thoughts on why this happens?  Is there a more accurate/permanent way to define the screen element?

Sounds like the UI elements are dynamic.
If you do a recapture the next day (When your script stops working) are they different?
Could you show one of the UI elements that stopped working and/or the website?
