I did not use a specific activity that is for google. I used the Use Application/Browser activity, just like we used to access the Find Unicorn Name website. This allows me to use any type of email account, including yahoo or any others.
I also had to use Click and Type into and some of the other individual actions. This is a workaround and not as simple and elegant as using the single activity Send Outlook email, but it works.
The nice thing about using the Send Outlook email activity is that you don’t have to worry about trying to anchor all of the different targets - for the From box, To box, Subject, Body, Send button, etc, which can definitely be a challenge when using the non-specific Use Application/Browser activity.
That’s a great point! Actually, for this project, I switched over to my personal PC instead of my work PC and was able to use the Outlook resource without any issues, so I did not run into this issue.
BUT - since I was curious if I would get that error, I tested it out, and sure enough I do - it seems that you can’t nest an Application/Browser activity inside another Application/Browser activity, so you have to click on the plus symbol that is located outside of the previous Application/Browser activity…
