Hi everyone, is it possible to allow the system to create a new directory every month?


#2

We need to program bot to create a folder.

  • Use Path exist activity, with path as “D:\uipath” + Now.tostring(“MMMM”)
  • If not exist, use create folder activity with path “D:\uipath” + Now.tostring(“MMMM”)

Thanks for the fast response, managed to did that! Appreciate your help.

However, another question I have is regarding the automaton of creating this folder using this software monthly. Is this possible using while loop or for each function? Thanks for the help.

Congrats. :slightly_smiling_face: You can just use the same bot and schedule it from Orchestrator for the first day of each month. If you create a software for this, it should be keep running through out the months. So best way is you can schedule the bot from Orchestrator.
