🎓Teach Michael: Business Objects (VBOs) you can't work without

  • 1.  🎓Teach Michael: Business Objects (VBOs) you can't work without

    Posted 27 days ago

    Howdy everyone!

    I've now fully developed 2 automations using Blue Prism, and I have to say I'm hooked. One was a very simple tool where I built a Business Object (BO) to read a website and extract the latest submissions to an Excel sheet. The other took Purchase Orders and input them into an online finance management tool.

    Both of these projects made use of VBOs available on our Digital Exchange, which has over 1700 VBOs ready for you to use. That's a lot of functionality to browse through though - so I'd like to ask...

    What are the VBOs from the Digital Exchange that you couldn't work without?


    I'd love to hear about the VBOs you use everyday, the objects that have come to your rescue when nothing else was working, and even BOs you've built yourself to solve a particularly niche use case. I'd love to give them a try!

    As always, the advice you share here will be added to our "Community Tips for Beginners" thread to help newcomers get started in the world of automation!

    Thanks in advance community, I couldn't have gotten this far without you 💙

    Michael

    "Lately we started using VBOs for Graph API"

    @Neeraj Kumar what's the use case here? Is that so you can interface with Office file formats without the software installed on the digital worker?

    Michael Shillingford - Yes .Graph API is alternative to Outlook VBO and it do not require software to be installed in the DW.
