RoboTask aims to help users eliminate the need to endlessly repeat complex tasks by automatically doing them for you. While its intentions are good, we were constantly concerned that setup was more difficult than the actual task, which led us to question its time-saving value.
We immediately went to the program's instructional Help file because its interface is jumbled and full of unfamiliar command icons. Unfortunately, the Help file's instructions seem to be written for people who already understand the program and thus weren't very useful to a newcomer. We needed to experiment for a while to get the hang of things. By navigating a complicated file tree and selecting a long series of commands, we were supposed to be able to automatically check e-mail, and open programs, ZIP files, and more. However, we were only able to perform a handful of tasks successfully, and even then RoboTask would occasionally open the wrong program. Coordinating these tasks felt more difficult than manually performing them and therefore seemed like a waste of time. There's a feature that lets you schedule tasks, but since the tasks didn't always perform correctly, we didn't see its need and didn't feel we could trust it. We were constantly disappointed by this overly complicated tool and couldn't help but think of similar programs we've tested that were much easier to use.
RoboTask is free to try for 30 days. Since we had difficulty understanding its operation and getting it to perform successfully, we can't recommend this program.
