New Tab Block

The New Tab block creates a new browser tab that the workflow can interact with.

New Tab Block, starts the interaction with the tab that you set it.

To start a workflow, you must specify the URL where the workflow will take place.

Please note that when entering the URL in the entry field, the address must begin with http:// or https://.

The block settings are shown in the screenshot.

The main setting is the New tab URL. Here you need to enter the URL of the browser page that you want to interact with from the workflow.

You can also set additional options for the tab you want to open.

  • Update previously opened tab. Use this option if you need to open a page in a previously opened tab. Initially, you need to open a new tab using the New Tab block. Next, you need to place a new block on the work field with the Update previously opened tab setting. When the workflow is running, the initially opened page on the tab changes according to the settings of the second New Tab block.

  • Wait until the table is loaded. It is useful to set this setting, because often errors in the workflow arise due to the unavailability of the open page itself to work, it may not be fully loaded by the time the next block is executed.

  • Set as active tab. This setting allows the browser to switch to a newly created tab, as a person does to view a site page. The setting is set by default when placing the New Tab block.

  • Add tab to a group. In the Google Chrome browser, it is possible to create a group of tabs to work faster using keyboard shortcuts. Using the setup, only one group is created for the workflow.

  • Use custom User-Agent. This setting determines how your browser identifies the website. The display of the site in the browser may depend on this. You can change this value to the one you need.

You can also specify additional settings for the new tab block
