    Every month we will post a different open-ended question on relevant and current topics. We'd love to hear your thoughts, experience and approach to the different questions we pose.

    Our Hot Topic of the month is: 
    What is the best tip you've received that has helped you with your Blue Prism automations?

    Do you have some input to share on this month's Hot Topic? Let us know below and you can also receive a Community coin!

    A few years ago, it was suggested to me to think through what happens if the Runtime Resource turns off at any point throughout the Process Flow. Ask yourself if the process can continue from where it left off when it starts again and that it will not re-perform actions in a system that it should only do once.

    Hello,

    Best Tech Tips - 
    1) Using Too Much Memory? Tactics for dealing with memory consumption - By @James Woods

    2)  #BPTechTips - Break on Exceptions - By @Emerson Ferreira

    3) #BPTechTips - Load content File - By @Emerson Ferreira


    A couple of ideas for next Hot Topic discussions - 
    1) We can include various comparisons of tools that are integrated with the blue prism. For e.g. various OCR Tools, Data Visualization tools, Data Reporting tools, Process Mining tools, etc. So people would be giving their opinion based on their experience sharing with everyone which tool worked best for their use case when integrated with Blue Prism.

    2) If you've been given a chance to add new features to blue prism what it would be?

    3) Which are the sectors where RPA can be highly beneficial but are still left uncovered in the international market.​​​​

    Blue Prism allows you to program without having to follow specific syntax rules.

    Take advantage of it!

    Name stages in a concise and clear way. Use blocks to separate parts of the flow. Don't be afraid to create subpages. Re-organize and restructure code as you go. Make the process beautiful and easy to understand. Make it so simple that anyone could understand it without needing documentation.

    Most likely, someone else will need to apply corrections to your process and that person might not now what the process does. Having a clean and easy to understand process will reduce the debugging time and will certainly avoid the risk of creating new errors.

    That is an excellent idea! We tried Decipher on invoices about a year ago, but the feature was new then and the invoices had too low resolution (about 200). Capture worked well with a website, but you need (needed?) admin rights to export the file. For SAP, it didn't work as well. BP are looking into it. Please anyone - I would love to hear other's experiences! /Anna
