Automation Workshop Free Edition is a free Windows automation application that automates repetitive computer tasks, from the simplest to the most complex.
We all waste time performing monotonous, repetitive tasks on the computer. Automation Workshop Free Edition can handle many of these tasks for us, freeing us to work on the important, challenging tasks in our lives. The software can even detect changes to our computer and respond to them automatically, without our having to press a single key.
Unlike keyboard macro programs that require us to learn a complicated scripting or programming language, Automation Workshop Free Edition uses simple, intuitive automation options. The intuitive user interface, and the common sense notions of triggers and actions, allow you to automate time-consuming work, without being—or hiring—a programmer.
Automation Workshop Free Edition works on all modern 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows versions · Windows 7 · Windows 8 & 8.1 · Windows 10 · Server 2008 & 2008 R2 · Server 2012 & 2012 R2 · Server 2016 · Server 2019.
The software can recognize triggers such as the creation of a new file, a change to an existing file, or moving a file to a different folder. It knows when users log on and off, and when the system starts or shuts down. In response to any of these triggers, you can tell the software to take specific actions. For example, you can say that whenever Automation Workshop Free Edition finds a new text file in a specific folder, it should print it, or email it to a friend or colleague, or upload it to your blog.
You can connect multiple triggers and actions to automate very complex tasks. The software can perform complex logic, resulting in different actions for different circumstances.
Task Wizard will help you to assemble and deploy an automated Task within minutes. There is no need to code, use scripts or do expensive programming. A growing set of predefined building blocks is readily available. From simple operations to complex solutions, Automation Workshop Free Edition will take care of your automation needs. Every task you automate will save your time and cut costs in the future.
Whatever the automation, it is always essential to keep track of what is happening in the system. Be it error troubleshooting or regular activity review, Automation Workshop Free Edition always provide the best means to get the full picture of recent events. Besides featuring an advanced logging system and customizable email reports, it also employs a proactive approach to event occurrences and often can automatically react to potential problems.
Automation Workshop Free Edition is distributed as a freeware for non-commercial use. Individuals and non-profit organizations around the world can take advantage of IT process automation to further their personal or social goals.
