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.


Thank you Anthony

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


Thank you every one.
