Triggering a process via email without a dedicated bot

We have a project in our pipeline that requires the ability to trigger a process at any time via an email. All of the articles I’ve found recommend roughly the same thing. Have a bot that is constantly running and checking the inbox for anything it can add to a given queue - triggering a process in orchestrator.
UiPath Example

Our RPA program is less than a year old and it’s a big ask for an additional unattended bot license to dedicate completely to this task. I thought I’d reach out to the community here to see if anyone had any clever solutions to this, without the need to eat up a licensed bot’s full capacity.

Hi @MrCarder
You don’t need a dedicated licence to achieve that. You can take a look at background processes, that can run in session 0 (in parallel with a foreground process). The only requirement is no interaction with the UI.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:
