During the design stage, you should evaluate whether an attended robot could possibly be run as an unattended robot. If your business requirements can be fulfilled with an unattended robot, create an unattende robot!
Unattended robot advantages
There are significant advantages to publishing unattended robots, three of which are:
- They can be scheduled
- They can be run based on a trigger
- They can run even if a computer is locked or the screen saver is on
- They do not need a human to initiate them
So if your use case can be fulfilled with an unattended robot, definitely choose that route. The less human intervention needed in a UiPath process the better.
