A Toad® for Oracle Tech Brief, by Quest Solutions Architect, Devin Gallagher.
The AppDesigner is a very powerful feature in Toad to help automate tasks you need to perform on a regular basis. Apps are made of actions that can be created from within the AppDesigner. Action Recall with the AppDesigner leverages Toads ability to “recall” actions in Toad that you have already performed and may need to repeat. This allows a Toad user to save time spent on repetitive tasks. Toad Apps are also a great way to collaborate across teams by sharing these actions and apps via the clipboard and email, as well as importing/exporting Toad Apps through the AppDesigner.
Note: The AppDesigner was renamed to the "Automation Designer" in Toad for Oracle 10.0. Most of the information in this document is still relevant to Toad 10.0 and later.
