About the Selectors Overview for Business Analysts course

UI Automation refers to the capability of the UiPath platform to interact with graphical user interface (GUI) elements of desktop, web, and virtual environments. This includes automating tasks such as clicking buttons, entering text into fields, selecting dropdown options, and navigating between different windows or tabs. 

This course starts with identifying and describing the key components of UI automation, and how they work in cohesion to automate user interface tasks. Next, we cover what selectors are in the context of automation development and finally, we provide an overview of different selectors/targeting methods along with the circumstances under which they can be used. 

It takes around 25 minutes to complete this course. At the end of it, you will receive a diploma of completion.
