Week 1: Understand what you can automate

Good exercise to show the importance of mapping the Robot Path. Precision is key when creating the Bot as it can only do what to “tell” it to and without proper mapping of the process the automation my fail.

Actually it’s quite logical to have the steps as granular as possible, otherwise you will not be able to translate it to a Robot. The example is quite useful, also the Double UI app can help with mimiking the use of an ERP app.

This one was really fun, especially since I had to opportunity to go back and try to identify a mistake. I kept looking at the e-mail that did not leave the drafts folder, until I realized I forgot to uncheck the Save to drafts box.
