Have you uninstalled old version ?

@lakshman yes uninstalled old version and then installed the new version. Also one more thing want to mention here that i am not able to see that UIrobot in windows option. I went to this path to run the Uirobot.exe “AppData\Local\UiPath\app-19.12.0-beta0061\UiRobot.exe”.
I did twice uninstall and then installed still the same issue. When i checked the UIstudio it is app19.12.0 and also in that Uirobot path and went i ran there also UIrobot 19.12.0 only. But still the same issue. Please suggest

Is the option to not show the reminder and instead just have the bot run implemented yet? Wondering for both community and enterprise edition. (Not orchestrator just in the robot)

Hi, does the machine with Agent Desktop installed need license in order to start a job?
My use case is that business user will start the robot from his machine but the process itself will run in a back office robot (server).

My Thoughts on the Feature:

I feel it’s not scheduling, It’s just a reminder !. I was expecting it would behave like an unattended bot & start the process at the schduled time. But, thats not the case though. Robot will generate a reminder at the set time & the user has to click on the “Play” button for the process to start.

I strongly feel we should let the business users schedule processes attended robots. Customers who don’t have orchestrator will get increased value. Up until 2018.3.3 we could schedule processes on attended robots with task scheduler.

THIS!

This is the best purpose for the Agent Desktop. The current functionality is kinda useless. Attended robots are mostly run on demand anyways. Why not add automatic start? Uipath really wants their customers to be required to buy Orchestrator, so if they wont give us this feature why sell Orcestrator and robots separately at all?

I totally agree with you, If UiPath allows scheduling of Attended robots the number of customers buying orchestrator will go down! Also, in all the marketing content they put out, they should call the feature as “Set reminders to Trigger Attended Processes” instead of referring to it as “Schedule Attended Processes on Agent Desktop”. I feel it’s misleading to call it “Scheduling”.

Hi guys,

First of all, sorry for naming this feature “Scheduling”. The purpose wasn’t to create wrong expectations. It just felt like a scheduler for us :sweat_smile:. We will change this in the next release. Thanks for letting us know that the name isn’t right.
Regarding the auto-start: this product is meant to be used in attended scenarios; this means a human will work on the same machine thus making it improper to start a process out of the blue. The human may do something else when the process was scheduled or may even be in a call, and that’s why we cannot steal his mouse or display an Excel containing private info without her explicitly saying that this is OK.

Thanks again for your constant feedback. It helps a lot to know that every time you make a mistake, there is someone out there that will give you a heads-up! :bowing_man:

Hi

This features reminds the user to run the process.
Is it possible to run the process automatically without user input when the time comes?
Can we expect any such feature in attended robot

Connect this Robot machine with Orchestrator and then try it. And also make sure create Robot of type Unattended.

Hi @zouchen007

Welcome to our UiPath Forum! :slight_smile:

Please make sure to perform a clean installation of your Studio Community Edition.

It would seem that it is still the old version (as the new version 2020.4 should have the UiPath Robot renamed to UiPath Assistant) :slight_smile:
