"We are an IT Integrator working a project with a manufacturing company to implement an ERP system to replace their home-grown system. The plan is to have both systems running 3-6 months before powering off the home-grown. Hence, there is a need to populate data from one system to another to avoid double input and error. Since I have heard about WinTask before (from associates), therefore, we used your software for this purpose."
"I have found WinTask particularly useful for website promotion. I use e-mail safe lists (spam free), FFA lists and Search engine submitters. WinTask easily allows me to log in, submit etc. and also perform other routine maintenance tasks. WinTask also saves me money because I don't need to buy the dedicated software that is available to do these tasks. At the moment I am saving about one and a half hours per day and I expect this saving to increase as I add more promotion services."
"We purchased the tool to do a load test against a client-server application. However, as I became more familiar with Wintask, I found that it had much broader usage throughout my projects in helping me to perform repetitive Windows tasks. So, now I use it to make my project tasks more efficient. In addition, some performance tests require lengthy initial procedures as well as post-test procedures to be performed. If a step is omitted, it can make the test run invalid. WinTask is also very good for this. WinTask helps me insure that all the steps carried out are consistent from test to test, so that my tests have greater stability and are highly reproducible, very important aspects of the tests that I perform."
"I've indeed found WinTask very interesting: I've evaluated over a dozen macro and replay utilities and surely none of the others are able to go any further than being just plain repeaters."
"I am using Wintask to avoid the boring task of running, every night, the Workspace Assistant of Tradestation, transferring the results into Excel workspaces, handle them to obtain series of recommendations for traders for next morning.The automation consists in running WA + Excel seven times per night, in total around two hours, with just one click."
"I am amazed and in awe that such a good product at such a low price has such responsive technical support - this is such a very rare thing to find in the world these days. I anticipate that this tool will be the technical solution needed to solve painful problems that consume much of my time"
"I use WinTask to capture prices off webpages and "dump" them in a file or database. I use it too logging into websites with my password and place orders for products."
"Each institution has to build information having its systems as source. Then they need to enter then in a browser form (!!!!) manually. Super Wintask does the work. It reads the input file, generally in access, enters information and navigates though the browser, built a log, and at the end generates an input for other system."
"I automate the generation of Crystal Reports. I have a Crystal Report where I view the report and refresh the data at a specific time, then I rename the file based on whatever the date is. I put this file into a pre-selected directory and email the file to other users."
"Let me start off by saying how much I love your product. I have been using WinTask for 4 years now and I am constantly finding new ways of using it and have thoroughly enjoyed coding with it for repetitive tasks. I just can't get enough! I just seem to want to find more ways of using this great tool."
"We have a complex C++ database application with about 30 dialogs. When we fix one thing, it breaks something else. We needed a regression test badly. I have 121 WinTask scripts now. They clear the database, import known data, add, duplicate, rename, edit, delete, reorder and export. Then compare the exported data to expected data. We plan to use WinTask for several other applications. We already discovered and fixed several application problems while creating the WinTask scripts. I think we made a wise investment. I will recommend WinTask in the computer forums that I visit."
"We use WinTask to automate the process of installs on about 150+ machines throughout the US, Europe, and Asia."
"The goal is to automate a number of data extracts from (currently 5 different) UNIX systems into a single database that resides on our network server. This automation eliminates the manual process and also allows us to view the data on a daily basis, which we currently do not provide due to the time consumption this process takes manually. Loading the data daily will allow us to view changes in cost and inventory as well as a comparison in sales between the different facilities/branches. Your product has eliminated a ton of redundant tasks as well as add productivity to our company : with your Scheduler, the automated tasks are runnin before/after working hours and it alleviates user complaints about the server system being slow due to the data pull."
"Thanks for all your and your team's hard work on this product and for addressing and fixing the bug so quickly that cropped up with SP2."
"We are a small firm with a web based order entry system. The order entry process is a many-page, many keystrokes endeavor, and your product automates that process beautifully."
"I use WinTask to take data in an excel spreadsheet and perform data entry into my accounting system. As my spreadsheet lists 1000 items that need to be entered, the automation script saves a lot of time."
"I have written a couple of long scripts to automate a web data extraction task. The product is very well suited to web data extraction tasks."
"We use PeopleSoft ERP software and we needed a way to automate running PeopleSoft autopilot scripts. These scripts are recorded PeopleSoft tasks that give us an indication of how the software is performing. With Wintask we were able to automate logging a user onto a Microsoft Terminal Server farm, run the Autopilot software on the server, run the appropriate autopilot scripts, and logoff the server. The whole system gives us ERP Interactive performance monitoring capabilities."
"We searched for a tool to do automated tests of an internet-application. WinTask is doing this job pretty good when I consider its price."
"The quality of your product is second only to the quality of your support."
"At work, I'm trying to use WinTask to automate the collection of information from our laboratory systems, and for regression testing of some of our software. I manage a Systems Engineering Group responsible for quality and performance of the hardware and software used in the video servers that we manufacture."
"Basically, what we're trying to do is provide a quick way to test the features of our product. It is still in development and I have created multiple scripts to perform different scenarios using our product to make sure everything still works after changes are made"
"I wrote a WinTask macro to control MS Explorer and to use arrow down to the next file, push F2 and rename the file, setting a number in the front of the filename and pushing enter."
WinTask is great tool. I think anybody that works in Windows on a daily basis should have a tool of this sort. I can foresee using this tool quite often."
"I think it is awesome tool. The help files are very clear and concise, and the scripting language is easy to pick."

WinTask includes a powerful programming language similar to Visual Basic. Here are all the functions included in WinTask and WinTask x64, with a brief description. You can see how comprehensive it is - practically any repetitive task can be accomplished.

When you use the Recording Mode, these functions are automatically generated by WinTask and compiled into a complete Script. Advanced users can modify or create Scripts directly in the programming language using these functions.
