Open files discreetly


I am wondering if there is a way to run applications discreetly.

I have an automation that i am running that would get info from outlook then save it to an excel sheet. what happens are the steps below

  1. robot looks for a specific email
    2.robot then opens excel and saves info to a cell
  2. robot closes excel.
  3. loop

the way things are now is a little intrusive. if i am using the PC where i am running the robot, excel would open and close every now and then.

i would like to see if there is a way where uipath opens the necessary applications discreetly.

Hi @rdperalta
Buddy in your workflow mostly all the process will run in background and discrete except excel…it will come to foreground whenever a excel file is written… Unless the property VISIBLE in the Excel application scope is disabled…
Kindly disable that property in excel application scope that would run the Excel in background…and would make it discrete while running
Otherwise your workflow will be good enough to run as you expect buddy
Kindly try this and let know for any clarification
Cheers @rdperalta
