NeoWise Software releases RoboTask 2.4, a Windows-based application that automates routine operations, now with a set of new features and enhancements suggested by end users.
RoboTask lets anyone regardless of their computer knowledge automate any combination of tasks on the PC. This may range from application launch to file backup, folder sync, email retrieval and processing and anything else you can imagine.
Complex automations may involve conditional IF/ELSE statements, loops, custom variables and other advanced options. The best thing is that you can set up automations right out of the box without the need to create complex scripts or batch files. RoboTask provides a visual interface and over a hundred actions that can be selected and combined into a task in a point-and-click fashion.
Version 2.4 further expands RoboTask’s functionality with a string of new useful additions and enhancements. “One of the principles we build our business on is collaboration with end users, whose suggestions help us deliver the product that best addresses their needs,” says Oleg Yershov, lead developer at NeoWise.
“The development of version 2.4 has been driven by their requests. RoboTask has acquired a new plug-in for work with a POP3 server and analysis of email messages. Now its actions let you easily organize, for example, a server that will receive commands by email. We have also added “Import Registry” and “Export Registry” actions that expand the backup abilities. Also, customers will discover new actions to synchronize a task with other tasks and processes. They are called “Wait for File,” “Wait for Process.”
RoboTask at a Glance
RoboTask makes the process of automation refreshingly easy. Clicking on the Create New Task icon in the main window starts a wizard-style dialog that assists you in selecting an action, customizing its behavior and setting up an action trigger. Currently, RoboTask offers over a hundred elementary actions, which you can combine into highly complex sequences that fit your specific automation needs. You can automate file operations like copy, move, rename; manage automatic backups; schedule and run FTP and Web server operations, etc. These automations may be enhanced with loops, conditions, and the use of a BASIC language interpreter allows power users to add virtually unlimited functionality to RoboTask’s jobs. These jobs may be launched manually, scheduled to run automatically, or can be configured to be triggered by a wide array of changes in your PC. The program may run as an NT service.
RoboTask 2.4 runs under Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003. Registered customers are entitled to free upgrades to minor versions, considerable discounts on upgrades to major versions, and priority technical support. Discounts for volume buyers are available.
