When playing back actions in the form of a recorded clickpath web check, sometimes certain content elements can take longer to render than the load time of the page. To improve this workflow we’ve introduced a new type of wait called wait for next action, which does exactly as its name suggests. This type of wait is especially useful for login pages, credit card authentication pages, and other pages that require lengthy rendering before business-critical elements are available for interaction.
While it’s been possible for some time now to configure clickpath web checks using the Wait for element setting, it hasn’t always been clear which content element Ruxit should wait for before continuing on with the next clickpath action. The Wait for next action setting ensures that the page is fully loaded and that all necessary network content is downloaded before initiating the next clickpath action.
To use the Wait for next action setting:
- Click the Web checks tile on the Ruxit homepage.
- Select a web check.
- Click Edit web check in the menu bar.
- Scroll down to the action you want to configure and click Edit to view the settings.
- From the How long should Ruxit wait… list, select Wait for next action.
