Splitting Business Process in Bot Tasks
If you automate a complex business workflow in a single recording/Bot Task, it can be hard to maintain and update.
As a solution, we recommend splitting complicated Business Processes in several smaller Bot Tasks, i.e. automate each Bot Task separately, and then combine in a single Business Process.
See more in How to Split Business Process in Tasks.
Splitting data in the middle of Business Process
There are cases when data records for some of Business Process steps can be provided during execution of automation workflow only, and not available before the Business Process starts.
In this case, it is recommended to split data in the middle of the Business Process.
To do that, you can use a special Bot Form (ETL task). See more in Split Data Between Bot Tasks.
