Process & App Monitor

Monitor Windows applications and background processes with the Process & App Monitor Trigger. As a component of Automation Workshop Free Edition, it allows you to create fully unattended workflows that watches Windows programs and initiates a workflow on specific conditions.

Free Process & App Monitor Trigger

The Process & App Monitor Trigger is a great addition to Application Actions. By combining it with the Terminate App Action you can prevent unwanted apps or processes from starting. Or you can ensure that the application is always running, by starting it as soon as it has finished execution or has crashed.

You have the option to either monitor a specific application located in a designated folder or skip the path requirement and monitor applications regardless of their location on the disk.

Process & App Monitor features…

  • A free no-code solution to monitor running Windows programs and react to their changes.
  • Regularly watch all running processes in Windows and show a dialog box or send an email message as soon as a specific app is started.
  • Make a log of when a particular application is started or stopped, and further process the created log with powerful text processing Actions.
