A year ago, we launched UiPath Go!: a marketplace where our RPA community could upload and share the automations they’ve created with others. Born out of feedback from our developer community, we envisioned a place where people could easily find and reuse high quality, curated components—making it easier for everyone to work less and automate more.
By making a library of open source components available for anyone to use, we aimed to further democratize RPA by crowdsourcing innovation and giving people the resources to get started with automation.
Since its creation, we’ve seen 319 community members and 109 companies share their ready-to-use components on Go! with UiPath’s community of more than 48,000 users. Varying from custom activities, snippets, and automation frameworks to connectors, machine learning models, and industry specific solutions, marketplace content is created and uploaded by UiPath teams, business and technology partners, and our Community members. Then, it’s vetted by the UiPath team to ensure that only high-quality components are made available for download.
To date, the marketplace has seen over 700,000 downloads of reusable components (including downloads from UiPath Studio Feed)—a clear indicator that the community is making it easier and faster for anyone to use automation.
Open Innovation in the Go! Marketplace
Thanks to our community, we’ve seen innovation flourish within our Go! Marketplace over the last year. Here are just a few examples of components that certified RPA developers have uploaded:
- - Robot Assistant: Tobias Lint, a student at the University of Vienna, built a custom activity that displays a robot assistant window in the corner of your screen. The robot assistant can provide update messages, show a progress bar, or notify you when an action is required, making it easier to keep tabs on your robot’s activity.
- - Voice for Your Bot: Created by senior business and data analyst, this automation enables your robot to read text out loud. And, you can control the speed, gender, and volume of the robot’s voice.
- - Salesforce Connector: Rammohan Banda, a senior RPA developer, created this set of eight custom activities that integrates with any Salesforce object. Using this automation reduces time, effort, and the risk of error of data operations in Salesforce.
- Anyone can contribute to open innovation in the marketplace. Simply create a profile as a company or individual user, and publish a component to share with the community.
