The ability to retrieve data from and populate excel spreadsheets and to automate pivot table steps will be brilliant for the completion of routine audits. For initiating contact and providing instructions to on boarding new hires.

I look forward to using the excel, and browser interaction tasks.

Great start! I’m trying to look at day-to-day processes with the “automation lens” but it is difficult! For example:

  • Send automatic messages via web whatsapp.
  • Read a file data base and automatically contact the owners when a file needs to be updated.
  • Automatically assign tasks based on availability.
