A Key Sequence Task allows you to send a sequence of key strokes (like a recorded keyboard macro) to one or more active connections. Royal TS will simulate keyboard input as it would be typed on your computer. This is a great way to automate repetitive tasks or execute the same command on multiple sessions at once.

 

Dashboard

The Task Dashboard is shown in the Dashboard panel when you select a Task (Command Task or Key Sequence Task) in the Navigation panel.

Task Context

Note

Key sequence tasks can only be executed on active connections, therefore the task context for those tasks will only show active connections.

 

Do not interfere in any way (switching to other connections, applications, pressing any keys, etc.) during key sequence task execution. The status bar will notify you (text in red) when the key sequence started and (text in green) when it ended.
