Wait actions are intended for pausing bot execution for a defined period of time and for searching images on user screen. These actions are not recorded automatically. You need to drag them from Actions Library to Actions Flow while editing a recording.

Actions LibraryAction Description


The action pauses the bot execution for a specified amount of time, then automatically resumes.

Wait for Image

The action performs a search for a defined image on the current screen and puts the search result into a boolean variable. The values are as follows.

  • true – if the image was found on the current screen
  • false – if the image was NOT found on the current screen

Use case

While automating a web application, use the Wait for Image action to wait for an element to appear (button, link, image) before interacting with it.


  • Image to find – specifies the image to look for on the screen.
  • Wait up to – defines the period, during which the bot will try to find the image on the screen.
  • Save outcome to variable – the value of the selected boolean variable becomes true if the image was found, and false if not.
  • No labels
