Ipswitch continues to innovate as part of the Progress family and we are proud to release an updated version of iMacros as of November 12, 2019. iMacros v12.6 is now available and includes features that let you:

  • Create Playlists to run a sequence of macros from the GUI or command line
  • Automate Printing to PDF/XPS files using Microsoft native print drivers
  • Support Encrypted Content (i.e. passwords) with DirectScreen and IMAGECLICK commands
  • Encrypt the iMacros Master Password with Windows user credentials
  • Directly Retrieve Macro Variable Values with the new iimGet() API method
  • And many more…

With the new Playlist functionality, Professional and Enterprise Edition customers now have an additional tool for playing a collection of macros. This is especially handy for common automated workflows such as:

  • Run a search/query macro, and then loop a macro to extract results
  • Login, repeat a number of steps, logout

Of course, the Enterprise scripting interface (API) continues to provide additional flexibility and better error handling for these types of scenarios, but for simpler use cases, playlists provide a quick and easy way to automate the playback and looping of a set of macros using the GUI or command line.
