Exports For Documentation, Automation, and Improvement
After enough data has been collected and AI Training has been initiated and completed, the organizations Tasks section and Processes section should be full of tasks and processes. Many of these will be of little value, but some will extremely valuable because they either have a high automation potential or high improvement potential.
OfficeAutomata's Dashboard automatically produces PDDs of tasks for export (Process Detail Documents) as well as other important documents needed by RPA developers or Business Process Improvement managers.
There are currently four main exports options within the Dashboard.
- Task Automation Data in Excel spreadsheet
- PDD Template in Word
- PDD in PDF
- Robot Framework in Python
Where to find Exports
Use the left-hand navigation column to go to the Task tab. Click on any of the tasks to open it in the top horizontal navigation row. Click on the Task Name to open it.
At the bottom of the Task "Name" panel are the exports.
