Upload A file


I am trying to develop a robot and one process is to upload a file which is saved from email as pdf. The process need to click the attachment button in the application and select the file from the folder which saved the pdf.

How can I get this running ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello @Sheen_Ildephonse

Here you need to automate email and the pplication to upload the file.

So the first part is to automate email to download the file. For that you can use the email activities in uipath. Which email provider are you using?

For uploading the file, use application/browser activity and open the application.
Then use click activity t click on the upload button.
Enter the file path and clikc on Ok( use type into and click acitivity)
