Week 1: Build your first Robot

One important step in Rebooting your Skills is engaging with your peers who follow along the same journey. You’ve built your first robot today!

What 3 automation examples can you think of that would impact you the most - either for learning impact - or just save you doing a lot of work! Time for a collective brainstorm.

  1. Sending an automatic email to a group when someone contributes a new forum post.
  2. Emailing a supervisor a report that was downloaded and processed.
  3. Cleaning up your local folders.

For any technical question, or to provide ‌feedback, please create a new topic in our Reboot Your Skill category here.

Really nice exercise to start off! :smiley:

I see great potential in non-value adding activities such as sending an email to the supplier confirming the order introduced in SAP, for example. Small changes that may generate a big impact, saving time and money to many companies.

Excited about what comes next!


This was a great start. I really enjoyed it :slight_smile:

really nice, easy to use platform. 1st try quite cool

Hi everyone! It was so cool building my first robot albeit with help, but that’s the learning process! I had a few ideas for real world automation that could be helpful.

1.) Cash flows for budgeting purposes.
2.) Stocks and the Dow.
3.) Subscriptions for products and services.

Thank you!
