Create a new directory monthly



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


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.


Hi, sorry to trouble you again. How can i configure the resource path in “HTTP Request” activity to save a pdf file from website into the directory created based on the date? Thanks.
