In this article we are going to build the first bot that produces some actual result. This example will help you try Studio Pro in action.
Our goal here is to create a bot that shows a simple notification with ‘Hello, World!’ text. In this example we are going to use the User notification activity located in Human in the loop section.
Now let us start diving into RPA development!
Launch Studio Pro. You will see this message. Click Start development to start developing the bot.
Studio Pro welcome message. It lets you start developing a new bot
In the left part of the program window you can see a list of all the available activities. User notification is what we need to start. Scroll down a bit, find the Human in the loop button and click it to open the drop-down list and find this activity here.
'User notification' activity in ‘Human in the loop’ section
Drag and drop this activity onto the canvas or double click it. It should automatically connect to the START block. If it did not connect to it automatically, place your cursor at the small white circle on the START block. Your cursor will turn into a cross icon. Hold your left mouse button and drag the appeared button onto the activity block. It should look like this:
'User notification' activity connected to the 'START' block
Next, left click the User notification block. You will see the activity parameters in the right part of the interface. Type Hello, World! text in the Description message field. This is the message that will be displayed. Also, let us set Close after, sec to 5. This means that the notification will be shown for five seconds. Other parameters can be left untouched in this case.
An example of setting up the activity parameters
The algorithm is ready now! Launch it by clicking the button in the toolbar or by pressing F5 key. Studio Pro will be minimized and in a few seconds you should see the result:

This is it, you have just created your first bot! This simple example only shows the most basic capabilities of the platform. Be sure to check other articles with detailed explanations of what can be achieved with it!
