As some of you may know, Agent Desktop has been a part of our Community releases since November 2019 (19.11 Preview Release - #23 by nerlichman), and we are now proud to introduce Agent Desktop as part of our latest LTS release.
Agent Desktop is designed to offer a tailored attended automation experience and on track to become the one-stop-shop of RPA for business users.
It provides all the functionality you’re already familiar with in a more intuitive manner, but also some extra features to make attended automation an even smoother ride, such as:
- the Schedule widget makes it possible to set up a time or frequency at which an available process starts.
- configurable keyboard shortcuts to pause/resume and stop a running process, or to start a particular process
You can easily access it through the UiPath Agent Desktop app from the Start Menu.
For full 2019.10.4 release notes, see here.
Tools like these make the RPA development experience better.
UiPath is awesome
But, how can i set frequency to every 10 minutes? (Community version)
Can we use this without Orchestrator for scheduling the task ?
I was waiting for this great feature! The schedule widget. Great, great, great for attended automations.
How can I install it into my machine ?
If 2019.10.4 is installed, you should be able type UiPath Agent Desktop in the start menu search and run it
When installing 19.10.4 Studio .msi, after reading and accepting the terms of the License Agreement, the Advanced options are available for selection, one of it being: Use Agent Desktop.
Find here installation steps and below a screenshot of the Agent Desktop setting:
Does it also provide an option to pass values to input arguments like we were passing the values to input arguments from Orchestrator ?
Wow exactly what I was looking for
Similar to @Mukesh_Kumar1, does anyone know whether this feature can be used w/o orchestrator?
can we use my bot to run every hour
With respect to the feedback that was asked for towards the end of 2019, I am so glad to know my suggestions were taken into account. #UiPathCares
Hi @Mukesh_Kumar1! The answer is yes, the scheduling feature can be used without Orchestrator.
Hi @robot_learner! Yes, it can be used without Orchestrator.
Unfortunately, no. But It’s something we will look into for further versions. Thanks for the feedback!
Right now, this is not possible. But it is something we have on our roadmap.
