RoboIntern comes with a bunch of pre-configured tasks; these are examples that offer you an thought what it is able to.

Click the + button within the prime proper nook to begin a new job. There are three kinds of tasks to select from. Actions, Triggers, and Misc. The course of itself is comparable to that of the online service IFTTT which offers comparable performance. Select the + button to add a new motion. First you may want to set the Action Type. There are a lot of choices to select from. I will checklist those which most readers might discover useful right here.

There are many sorts of Triggers that you can allow.

Other triggers embrace File Status (File created, modified, deleted), RoboIntern Task Status (Another job completed or error), Computer Restart, and Manual Run.
Managing and Editing tasks
Head again to the primary display screen, it ought to make a lot extra sense now. The checklist consists of the serial quantity (order through which the duty will be executed), identify of the duty, the duty’s set off, standing, final run, and subsequent run instances. Right-click on a job to rename or clone it. There are four buttons subsequent to every job. These enable you to reset the duty, run it, edit it, or delete it.
Let’s create a easy job
How to create a job in RoboIntern
We are going to set a reminder. Go to the “Add Action” window and choose “Notification – Display a message”.
Type one thing within the message field and optionally allow the sound. Click the add motion button on the button to end the step. Next, you may want to set a set off for it. Select the add set off possibility, and set the time you need it to run at. Since we’re testing it, set it to set off in a minute or so. Click the Misc tab and give the duty a identify, and hit the “Add Task” button.
When the timer counts down, the duty is triggered and your notification will be displayed.
Here’s one other instance the place I set RoboIntern to copy a file to a completely different folder, it is triggered once I modify a particular doc.
Some extra examples, you can set a job which can be executed manually, and this one is set to zip a chosen folder and save the archive in a listing that you choose. One extra job which can ship an e mail when the earlier job has been accomplished. You can choose any motion, assign no matter set off you would like to set, and make it occur in RoboIntern. It’s easy.
Use the edit possibility within the motion, set off or misc window to edit its settings. RoboIntern is a moveable software program.
Note: Multiple situations of the program (and the tray icon) can be began. I am undecided if this is a bug.
The welcome display screen and its preset tasks make the program seem overly advanced to use, however RoboIntern is fairly simple to use, when you learn the way to create your individual tasks. You do not want any coding expertise or superior laptop information in any way to use the program.
