Continuously update execution logs in the Control Center

It would be great if the logs were sent from time to time to the Web Client, being updated frequently, instead of only at the end of the execution. Not as much as to cause performance issues, but enough to know that the robot isn't stuck. Currently the web client only shows the logs after the execution ends.

    If I understand correctly, in order to use Process the script must be initiated by a new item being added to a specific Queue, so this is not a suitable solution for every automation project. Is there a way to use the bind variable feature without a Queue? If yes, then this could be workaround to get logs in real time.

    You can actively monitor automation through Process feature. You can bind process variables to script variables, and they show up in the Control Center in real-time. You can further take advantage of the dynamic created table for the Process and create a dashboard to monitor what you want.

    Have you tried the Process feature?

    Not trying to troubleshoot, just occasionally monitor the automation (see which item was processed or how many there are, for example). This information could be made available through Info logs.

    Are you trying to troubleshoot your bot?
    You can troubleshoot a bot remotely using the "Attach to Schedule" or "Attach to runtime" features within Studio, have you tried that?
