Hey all

Currently have Automate running many tasks throughout the day. Usually every 3 minutes

I want to run mutliple tasks at the sametime. I do however need to use the chrome downloads folder so that is currently why they all run individually so there is no overwriting of the files.

I thought perhaps build a bunch of different chrome browsers and use these as seperate browsers for seperate default download folders for each chrome browser.

This allowing me to run multiple tasks at the same time without overwrite error

This doesnt seem to work.

I was wondering if anyone else has any ideas on how to achieve this. Can automate be downloaded on multiple devices so I could run a seperate automate programme? Or is it just one per subscription?

Hello John,

Regarding your first question, yes you can download multiple versions of AutoMate to different machines. However, each installation would require a separate license.

If you are running the Desktop version of AutoMate, you can either install full versions of AutoMate on the additional machines or you can install "runtimes" which are versions of Desktop without a GUI. You can find more information on Runtimes here:"

If you have Enterprise, you can install additional agents to run jobs, however again, this would require additional licenses.

Regarding your overall issue, your jobs are interactive in nature, and thus unfortunately cannot be ran at the same time with other interactive jobs. We recommend spacing out the jobs, so that they don't "run on top of each other". This would eliminate the need for additional licenses, but obviously, they wouldn't be running at the same time.
