Robot Triggers

Are there any components, packages, or functions that will trigger a robot:

  1. When an email is received
  2. When Google Form is submitted
  3. When a new file is saved on a directory

That would be of great help :slight_smile:

Hi @Jan_Brian_Despi

Some improvements are being considered in this area. It would be cool to be able to trigger jobs without a separate monitoring process.

I am thinking that maybe UiPath can have bot triggers like:

  1. Web Form
  2. Web Hooks
  3. SFTP
  4. Email

It would be a great addition if we can custom-build the web form.
Then we could configure and select robots that will handle the requests created by the triggers.
Maybe the information from the web form will be added in a queue.
What the selected machine/s will do is check real-time whether there is a queue item available for processing.

For the last remark (about queues), see here:

I don’t think we are going to make the Orchestrator a monitoring tool for external events very soon.

For this you may use

  • tools like zapier
  • a robot that checks constantly
    and call the orchestrator via api then get the result via webhooks.

Can you please help me out with any demo activity or article on how I could look into calling orchestrator to trigger the bot?
