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?

Was able to finish the outlook part successfully.

amazing!!!

Configured Outlook and was able to send email to gmail account.

It is easy to use and intuitive. I could use the robot built in various usecases where an email needs to be send regularly like EOD reports, quarterly reports etc…

First i wanted to say that I really like the course, it is amazing!
But I have a question…
I just build something for myself but can I still use that after this course or do I need to buy a subscription?
