Hi, this is Fujii. This is a summary of how to resolve bugs and glitches that occur with the automation application TaskMagic.
If these articles do not resolve the issue, please let us know in the comments section below this article.
Please note that this information is a summary of bugs that occur as of November 1, 2023, and how to resolve them. Depending on the version you are using, it may have already been resolved.
What is TaskMagic? Why is it buggy?
TaskMagic is an AI automation application that can efficiently automate daily routine and repetitive tasks.
For more information, please see this article.
Many managers and marketers have told us that they were able to automate all the tedious manual work, and that they are glad they purchased the product.
New features are being added to TaskMagic all the time.
On the other hand, when new features are added,Some bugs and glitches are created.Frankly, this is quite stressful.
This article will provide a clear description of the major bugs and glitches known at this time in TaskMagic and how to resolve them.
It will also explain how to report bugs and defects when encountered and how to resolve them through collaboration between developers and the community.
I know it's buggy, but is TaskMagic ok?
For those who bought the product with high expectations, there will be times when they will regret their purchase, "Oh, there is a problem with TaskMagic, is this OK?" You may regret your decision to buy this product.
I'm going to be honest and spit out my feelings, because the bugs are noticeable compared to other RPA and automation apps.I wonder if I made a mistake buying it."I thought at first.
In fact, at first I even said, "I don't need to buy this.
Therefore, I understand how you feel.
However, bugs and glitches are being fixed as we speak.
TaskMagic continues to evolve
If you almost regret purchasing TaskMagic, please watch the video below.
This is the first video posted on TaskMagic founder Jeremy Redman's YouTube channel.
The initial TaskMagic was so difficult to use that it is unthinkable today. Compare this with the current TaskMagic.
Over the past year, the functionality has clearly been updated.It can be seen that
Thus, one after another, TaskMagic is evolving.
Reports of bugs and glitches have been received, and the TaskMagic development team is actively working to resolve these issues in response to feedback.
Current glitches and bugs will also be fixed.
However, I will tell you how to solve the bugs that currently exist.
(1) Chromium Browser startup problems
Issue Description: In using TaskMagic, a problem has been reported where the automation window (Chromium Browser) does not launch after clicking on "capture steps".
The reason is that an older version of Chromium is installed.
The solution is to update the version of Chromium.
The specific solution is to first go to the user area of the computer,Locate the ".chromium-browser-snapshots" folder.
After deleting the folders in it, exit TaskMagic once.
Then reboot, and the new version of Chromium will be installed automatically, and the problem will be resolved.
(2) Automation window keeps opening.
A problem has also been reported with TaskMagic where an obtrusive, unneeded window keeps opening.
See the image above. It's a little confusing, but the TaskMagic screen on the right has already been automated.
Nevertheless, the left window continues to activate the TaskMagic automation.
Thus, the window may continue to rise even though the TaskMagic has been set up and the automation has finished launching.
In particular, people running TaskMagic on Windows seem to be encountering this problem.
Causes and Solutions
This problem occurs because of incorrect termination.
Solution,Open Task Manager and force the extra TaskMagic to terminate.
First, right-click on the taskbar.
Next, click on "Task Manager.
Right-click on "TaskMagic" in the application to end the task.
This completes all TaskMagic.
Then try restarting TaskMagic.
This method is also recommended by the TaskMagic official. Also, a fix for this bug is currently being worked on, so let's wait and see.
It is one of the more stressful bugs to encounter, and I predict it will be fixed sooner rather than later.
(iii) Problems with automation not running properly
Even if you create automations that scrape or click on certain elements, those automations may not perform well.
Why does this happen? See the video below.
The reason for this is that the element is not properly specified.
The advantage of TaskMagic automation is that it is intuitive to set up, but if the elements you specify are incorrect, the clicks and scrapings will not execute properly.
(4) Cannot add automation tasks.
If you are in the process of setting up an automation in TaskMagic and try to add a new step, you may encounter this notation and not be able to add it.
"Page has not finished loading. please try again in a moment. if it persists go back and then click scrape again."
(Page loading is not yet complete. Please try again. If it still persists, go back and click "Scrape" again.)
The cause of this defect is an attempt to add a new step before the page has completed loading.
To resolve,Adding a new step after the page has completely loadedIt is.
If you are already seeing this display, try closing TaskMagic once and then restarting it after some time.
What if I encounter a bug/glitch in TaskMagic?
Bugs and glitches in TaskMagic are being fixed as we go along. However, there may be some bugs that the development team is not aware of.
Inform the TaskMagic development team of the existence of bugs and defects.Simple bugs will be fixed soon.

TaskMagic: Summary of bugs and bug fixes
I myself have used numerous automation applications and RPA. Here is what I thought of TaskMagic when I first used it.
I was quite distrustful. I had no intention of introducing them.
...but now, 3 months later, I am using TaskMagic every day.
The TaskMagic development team has been proactive in addressing reported bugs and glitches. The TaskMagic has been greatly improved since I first used it.
To begin with, a year ago, it was not as complete as it is now.
It has been greatly improved and features added to date.
TaskMagic founder Jeremy is also aware of the current bugs and is fixing them one by one.
More features will be added in the next year or so, and we should be able to create automations more freely.
P.S. We are currently working on a website to explain how to use TaskMagic.
We will publish the article when it is somewhat ready. If there are many requests, we will create a place where TaskMagic users can share information.
