Every action or click in Automation Engine Pilot results in a long delay before the result of the action is displayed.
If you click on any location in Pilot, which needs to refresh the contents of the window, there is a long delay before the Pilot is refreshed. E.g. when you:
Switch between views
Type a value in a search box
Double-click on a task to open the workflow task's settings
Make sure that your Automation Engine Pilot workstation is in the same subnet as the Automation Engine Server. Also verify that the DNS server reacts fast because each update of the Pilot interface requires communication to take place between the Pilot workstation and the server.
