First Project - Accessing Portal, Searching a date range, selecting links and extracting files


Firstly, what a great application. Studio is freshingly intuitive and fun to use to deliver results. Being my first foray into this space I thought it best to get a sanity check and to ensure I am indeed making it as simple as possible to get the desired result.

Business Case - Working in construction we rely on delivery dockets extensively. Unfortunately out business sees a 20% loss of these dockets before they hit out system which means we spend days accessing supplier portals to extract the delivery dockets. The process is repetitive and perfect for my first little side project in RPA.


  1. Open Browser, go to site and log in
  2. Search with date range - To complete on a daily, so day will be 16/05/2019 to 16/05/2019.
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet
  3. Invoices presented in table, link to dockets

  4. Select View dockets to each
    — if there are dockets - download dockets
    — if nothing there then come back and repeat for the next.
    (I’d post more images, and posts but apparently as new users im limited)

What do you think - the portal is an older clunkier, less friendly version and would love to take this away from my team to try and fix
