This exercise was beneficial for me in so many ways. I’ve done research and watched so many youtube videos trying to figure out a good way to document complex processes for the human and for the bot.

In this single exercise I learned a simple, but efficient, way to document both a human and a robot path - and it was so satisfying (as a beginner) to easily create an automation while following steps from a properly written diagram.

Great learning

Working properly.

Yes, I believe using post-it notes on a whiteboard will help in breaking tasks down appropriately.

I enjoyed the latest challenge, and found that the path I followed was: Use Application (Outlook) [+ Use Excel] + Use Application (Outlook), and not the path followed in previous illustrations.

Yet, I suppose there will be more to know on how to create faster automation.
