Hi, friends. I can send the email by StudioX but before i had a couple of problems. Here are some important points to keep in mind:

  1. After obtaining the name of the unicorn you must use the resource “use the desktop outlook application”
  2. they must verify that their outlook account is open on the computer
  3. use the activity send email, in the account option they must choose their email and in the option to manually write the account to which they want to send it.
    I hope and it helps you and we continue to grow together. Greetings.

How do you replace picture with new picture as i am finding it difficult to do can you please help and an error keeps coming up when i do the process and run it that Error ERROR Validation Error A file name cannot contain a newline, or any of the following characters: * : ? " < > | Main.xaml. I have changed the name but still not working, can you please do a zoom call with me to go through this, Thanks

Hello Chloe,

Could you please share Main.xaml file of your workflow and the document where you’re trying to replace the picture ?

Also, you can connect on zoom calls during office hours only, check the upcoming office hours slot.


Hi. I also cannot see an option to include a signature. I’ve tried to map to the C1 Column in Excel but it does not add it as a task nor does the signature appear in the email.


Hi @thomas.oconnor,

Could you please check the below thread if it can solve your issue:


Excelente comentario, quiero agregar a este comentario, antes de usar la actividad enviar correo use la accion (utilizar la aplicacion de outlook de escritorio para loguearme), funciono perfectamente, y para agregar el nombre de unicornio que estaba guardado en el excel, simplemente en la accion de enviar correo en la parte de cuerpo me fui a la opccion editar y añadi el valor.

I created, tested, and it worked! However, it went to three other people in my team, and I didn’t input a distribution list, weird (even weirder, it only sent to 3 our of 4 team members). It didn’t allow me to create an HTML email, only Text. Overall, a success and I can see many uses for emailing things. Yay.

Hi Chloe, Have you tried downloading the sample completed project for the outlook exercise? That helped me see where I was missing it in mine. Let me know if you need any more clarifications. Thanks

I wont say very smart but another way to add the signature name (which is your Unicorn Name) in email is you can use the WEB BROWSER itself and then can use the “Text for later user” while sending.


In the Body of the email field you will see from the image that I am attempting to Indicate in Excel. However, it is not opening the Excel document that I have associated to the project? It is opening another Excel document. Any idea why this would be the case?
Thanks, Karen

Hi @keastwoodlovett

If it is opening another Excel file it could only mean that your Send Email activity is situated within the Use Excel File resource that is bound to the Excel file that you say is opening.

Can you check and revert? Or better still, share a screenshot of the “Use Excel File” card

Finally grasped the ‘nesting’ concept so figured it out.

Thanks, Karen

Studio x is so basic and beginner level. I’m trying to complete this course with studio pro. I am studying uipath for past 2 months. Happy learning :blush:

Good to know that you find StudioX to be as basic as it should be for beginners (community developers), it means its purpose is being met. Cheers and Happy Automation!
