Effective November 2020

  • Common Data Service has been renamed to Microsoft Dataverse. Learn more.

  • Some terminology in Microsoft Dataverse has been updated. For example,entity is now table and field is now column. Learn more.

Modules will be updated soon to reflect the latest terminology.

WinAutomation supports parallel implementation of many instances of the same process. In situations where parallel implementation is unwanted, the synchronization actions can prevent actions from being run simultaneously in multiple process instances.

Learning objectives

In this module, you will:

  • Learn when to prevent parallel implementation.
  • Configure synchronization actions.
  • Create a process with synchronization actions to prevent simultaneous access to a file.

Prerequisites

  • Basic familiarity with the WinAutomation Console and Process Designer
  • Basic familiarity with process development and variables
