How to Schedule an attended robot?

I designed a process. After starting the process the bot executes and sends an email and it has to wait for 1 hr and start it again. I have a attended bot license. the waiting 1 hr my license is occupied. Is the any way I can achieve this task?

Attended bots cannot be scheduled. These are initialized by a user on the machine the bot will be working or from Orchestrator. If you want the bot to start on a schedule, it needs to be unattended.

You can schedule Attended BOTS through Agent Desktop. If you want to use this feature then you need to install latest version Enterprise Edition of Uipath studio.

I think calling it scheduling is misleading to say the least. It just creates a reminder, the user still has to click on the Play button for the process to start.

Hey @Balesh

Two things…
If you have attended bot you can schedule it through agent desktop scheduler. However, it just gives you a reminder to run, and you have to run it ad attended cannot run automatically based on a schedule… if you have orchestrator go for unattended…

Other option, you can break the process into two separate processes that can run one after the other in a sequential way… this will help to release the idle execution of one hour

Is it possible to use a script having an event which will inturn run the bot based on the event and then schedule it using windows scheduler?

Hello @manojsinghal134

Scheduling the attended robot is often considered as the EULA breach and many companies avoid to take that risk, but as a user if you just want to try you can try the windows scheduler to schedule your workflow.

Attaching the complete guide for the same and again it is up to you and your organization to incorporate this.

Also @Balesh , please close the thread by marking any reply as solution, as this will help the forum to stay more receptive to actual, active and current queries.

Have a good time automating.
