Quick Start

Our values:

  1. Be friendly
  2. Be helpful
  3. Be considerate

About new topics:

If you want to create a new topic, please follow these simple steps:

1. Search first

Please go here :mag: and try a few different phrases that describe your issue. You can add status:solved after your phrase to look for topics that contain a post marked as a solution and wrap your search term in two quotation marks "search phrase" to search for the exact words.

For error messages, this can be a life saver


2. Post your topic in the relevant category

For more details, see our category guide here.
If you have doubts, always post in the Build category.

You can select your category while creating a new topic


3. Give your topic a clear title and a clear description

Good title should answer two simple questions:
What is happening? and When is it happening?

Click to see an example

Good topic description should give context to the topic title.
If you happen to have some issues with UiPath Software, you should try to provide all the information from this topic.

In every case, a lot of information facilitates fast and accurate answers.

4. Tag your topic with relevant tags

For more details, see our tagging guide.
If you have doubts, leave the tags empty and someone more experienced might help you out later.

You can add your tags like that while creating a new topic

If you still want to learn more, feel free to check out our old guide written by one of the founding fathers of this Forum @andrzej.kniola here.

And that’s it, happy learning!
