In The Spotlight: Robotask

by Oleg Yershov of Neowise


Set your computer to autopilot with RoboTask!

RoboTask, as one can guess from the name, is computer task automation software that frees computer users from performing routine actions day after day. The unique feature of this software is that RoboTask not only schedules tasks, like many common programs, but you can also program RoboTask to perform a variety of tasks triggered by any event. For example, when you place a document in a specified folder, this may trigger automatically uploading the document to an FTP server or e-mail the document. Or, in another example, deleting a file can trigger a synchronization event.

Most importantly, you do not have to have any special programming skills to perform highly complex automation, such as routines involving conditional IF/ELSE statements, loops, custom variables and other advanced options. Conveniently, RoboTask can run as an NT Service, allowing users to enjoy the program's features, without having to log on. The program is highly customizable and can be set to automatically perform almost any task - incoming e-mail notification, file moving/copying/renaming/deleting/synchronizing, automatic data backup, computer shutdown/rebooting, launching specified applications or documents, alerts about file changes, sending network messages, and much more. If a person can do it manually, RoboTask can automate it!

RoboTask owners have access to a growing library of free add-ons. You can download a CD/DVD writer, as well as a BASIC language interpreter that makes it easy for programmers to add unlimited functionality to their RoboTask jobs.

The most amazing part of the program is that any person can use it, because you can set up RoboTask with a series of wizard-like windows in which you can point and click items. System administrators will find the program of great help in their day-to-day operations. Industry experts have already noticed and praised the program by awarding it top rankings and Editor's Pick status at WebAttack.Com.

RoboTask is distributed over the Internet with a 30-day trial period. The free trial version is available at http://www.robotask.com/downloads/ for evaluation. During the evaluation, all features are fully functional. The price of a single personal license is 99.95 US Dollars.
