Hi! Here is me, here is Monday, here is new RPA Challenge!
I believe you will like this challenge! It is rather simple and useful!
I want you to create a little robot, that will run in the background and every time a specific shortcut is pressed, it will paste predefined text. Imagine how often you type in same things again and again. Like your email address, phone number, signature, greeting…
Use shortcut combinations that do not do anything in your system yet. For example:
- CTRL + ALT + numeric keyboard numbers
This part may be more challenging than you would guess! I guess you will explore some shortcuts that you had no idea that exist.
Store at least 4 different texts in an input file that is easily editable (like Excel sheet or CSV file) and assign shortcuts to them.
You can use:
- email address
- phone number
- greetings (as Best regards, Kind regards)
- some sentence that you repeat for ever and ever (I love you honey! )
- be creative!
Avoid storing passwords in plain text! (You use this robot to type in passwords, but only if you do it in a way that it cannot be abused, like using Type Secure activity and have them stored securely eg. in Orchestrator)
Of course, for purpose of this challenge, you can make up all the things, it does not have to be real address or phone number.
When you are done, please send me your code to PM.
And as usual - first 3 correct, original solutions earn 3 robopoints, next get 1 robopoint.

Challenge deadline is 24.4. by the end of the day. You can still submit your projects after the deadline but you cannot earn robopoints. New challenge is published every week or 2 weeks so don’t worry if you did not catch this one. Keep in mind, your submitted files may be published after the deadline so others can learn from solutions.
