Reboot Your Skills - Automation Starter - Build an Automation for Yourself - Out of Office Bot

Now that you’ve built an automation on your own, we’re curious about how the experience was for you.

Did we offer enough support? What would you add to your automation?

The problem was fixed.

My outlook worked fine with yesterday’s project, but isn’t allowing me to use any of the App & Web Automation activities (i.e., Click). The video said to update your packages, but all my packages say they’re up to date and I can’t figure out which one isn’t working.

(On the video at minute 5:22 the Indicate in Outlook element)

Any ideas?

I was finally able to get it to work by installing another office package and using the desktop Outlook App, instead of the Outlook 365 activity

Hi @S.Robertson! Happy to read you are resourceful!

Indeed the “Indicate in Outlook” option is only available inside the Outlook desktop resource (and all the other Office Desktop apps). To automate the UI of Outlook365, you’d have to open the mailbox in a browser, and then use the Browser resource instead of the Outlook 365 resource.
