When developers use the UiPathRobot.js to provide an application access to an attended robot they can easily execute any of the processes available on the local robot. Consider the following scenario for using a Microsoft Outlook extension to process an invoice attached to an email:
With the UiPathRobot.js, when the user gets an email a panel can automatically activate Outlook. The user can make the required selection, and the attended robot processes the email attachments and then provides a link to a Microsoft Excel file that contains the processed results. This makes it easy for the user to invoke the attended robot and remain in the flow of their current work.
The UiPathRobot.js Add-On is available out-of-the-box for UiPath Community 20.2 and later. It is available as a stand-alone installer for UiPath Enterprise (compatible with UiPath 19.10 and later).
To get started with embedding UiPath processes into your day-to-day applications, visit the developer documentation on robotjs.uipath.com. Be sure to check out the comprehensive User Guide and some of the pre-built samples.
