How to click link on web page and then click the next link?

Hello I am totally new to this. Can anyone tell me How can I select every 'evaluate tenderer' link on the webpage  and perform the winautomation process in 2nd image? The process seems to select the same link again and again. Is there any way to increase the value of control and click the next link after so that it runs as long as the 'evaluate tenderer' link exists?

Hi,


Please note that clicking on web elements requires you to enter a CSS selector as input to the relevant action. By manipulating the CSS selector, you should be able to change the element you wish to click on each time.


You may manipulate the captured selectors by double-clicking them in the Controls Repository. Adding a loop to your Process and using the Loop Index in the selector should provide the functionality you are looking for.


Please take a look at the following articles for more information on the subject:

Any other suggestion? thank you.

Try moving 2nd selector line above 1st line with the arrow buttons. Because if 1st selector line selector is found it will Not try the 2nd selector line. Or, alternatively, you could delete the 1st selector line.
