Workload Template - Slack for Windows


  • Please read each of the commented-out portions of this script, to see what it does and if there are lines which should be commented out or changed (variables, for example)
  • Environment: Win 10 Pro x64 winver 1909 18363.720 | Slack for Windows version 4.4.0 | Login Enterprise ScriptingToolset version 4.0.11
  • Google Chrome browser is optional to be installed -- if Slack needs to be logged into/authenticated via a web browser, then Chrome will be needed (or another web browser, but the script will need to be customized to support it)

This workload will perform the following interactions:

  1. Start Slack for Windows; ensure it's started
  2. Look for the Sign In button, but move on if not found
    1. If the sign in button is present it will process the defined sign in process, with the defined user credentials, into the defined workspace.
    2. If Sign In button not present then the script will assume the workspace is already logged into, and just continue on with the defined workload actions thereafter
  3. Interact with the logged in version of Slack desktop, verifying it has opened successfully to the landing page
  4. Open the defined Slack channel name by clicking on it
    Click on the new message field after the defined Slack channel has been opened
  5. Send test messages, with the defined loop amount, into the Slack channel via the message field
  6. Close out of Slack for Windows
