Microsoft Application Automation
Eliminate Microsoft Application Busywork with Automate
How many times each day do you or your team members use an application or tool developed by Microsoft to get your work done? From Outlook inboxes to Excel spreadsheets to PowerShell scripts, Microsoft is ubiquitous in the workplace. In fact, you are probably so accustomed to opening Microsoft applications that you don’t think about all the ways you could be automating those tasks.
Automate makes it easy to build automated workflows that incorporate all your most tedious Microsoft application tasks. Generate Excel reports automatically, manage your SharePoint files without lifting a finger, or kick off a cross-platform process when an email arrives in your Outlook mailbox. All of this and more can be done in minutes—no scripting required.
Excel spreadsheets are probably used across every department in your organization. While Excel is critical for organizing and analyzing data, copying and pasting values or reformatting workbooks manually is time-consuming and error-prone. Automate can drastically reduce the time required to complete an entire Excel process, while also eliminating human error. Already automating Excel with macros? Automate can run your existing Excel macros, making it possible to quickly and easily integrate them into your new workflows.
Automate’s Active Directory integration provides a central way to administer identity and access management for user accounts, computers, applications, and other services. Create workflows with pre-built actions such as bulk creation, retrieval, management and deletion of groups, user accounts, and other Active Directory objects.
Automate includes Exchange actions with the capability to automate activities like creating contacts, retrieving tasks, and entering schedules. It can also monitor an Exchange mailbox for emails matching complex filter criteria.
PowerShell is a command line shell and scripting language for Windows that's built on the .NET framework. PowerShell allows system administrators to perform administrative tasks on both local and remote Windows systems. With the use of Automate's PowerShell action, you can embed existing PowerShell scripts into your automated workflows or use a PowerShell script to trigger another process. You may soon find yourself replacing PowerShell scripts altogether with automation built in Automate's intuitive drag-and-drop interface.
