4. Click and Add Elements - Mobile Application

Why was this developed?

In earlier versions of Avo Assure, when the user captured the element in the mobile application, only a full scrape feature was available, and there was no way for the user to click and select an element.

What is the goal?

The Avo Assure team has developed the startClickandAdd feature. With this feature, the user can click and highlight the element on the screen, and the highlighted element will be added to the list of captured elements in Avo Assure.
