Week 1: Find out what RPA is

Good Exercise for a first time user like myself. I think this can be sued to fill in address on excel sheet from the internet for a specific category of products.

It works for me! niceee!

It was very easy to use StudioX and it worked from the first use. Hearing the sound of the new email from the robot felt great! :grin:

Hi guys!

After a couple of failures, I managed to add a text in the body section along with my unicorn name from the excel file. Everything works as expected.

It worked for me but only after I moved the “Use Outlook Account” Resource right under the "Get Text ‘Your Unicorn Name’ Action. At first I had it outside of that box and in the “Use Excel File” Resource.

Why would it make a difference? I don’t understand when to drop it into the current box or the original…Can someone help me?
