Choose an option from a manu, drop down, or selection box

Some websites require more than clicking a simple button to show the data you need. Mozenda allows you to configure your agents to interact with sites via menus, drop-downs, and selection boxes.

  1. With an agent open in the Agent Builder, browse to a site, start an agent.
  2. Select a menu, drop-down, or selection box.
  3. Make the appropriate selection in the window that displays.
  4. Select Create Action.
    The action is now saved in the Actions List on the left-hand side of the Agent Builder.

Record the Set User Input value in a collection

Agents can interact with text boxes and drop-downs. The value that the agent selects from a drop-down or inputs to a text box is called a Set User Input Value. This value can be captured in your data to add context and to help with troubleshooting.

  1. Open an agent in the Agent Builder.
  2. In the Action List, right-click a Set User Input action.
  3. Select Properties > AFTER THIS ACTION.

Record the Set User Input Value in the Output Collection_Image1(1)

  1. Specify the value in Data Capture.
  2. Select SAVE.
