Auto Mate, the name says it all. That is exactly what it does
and anyone, and I mean anyone, can use it to create automated tasks on your PC.
You systems administrators out there will also love this software just for
making your life that much easier.
This is so simple to use, drag and drop orientated to build the most complex of
repetetive tasks or to modify application behaviour. In most cases, these
automated tasks can be created without writing a single line of code! Any task
that can be accomplished in Widows can be created with the help of a wizard and
an intuitive drag-and-drop Task Builder.
Each task can be built step by logical step using two primary components
"Actions" and "Triggers". "Actions" are what you wnt your PC to do and
"Triggers" are the events that set the "Actions" off. There are over 100
"Actions" supplied including launching and closing of applications, launching
web sites, ftp and e-mail sessions, sending keystrokes to multiple windows
interactively, focusing windows forward and back... plus there are
"intelligence" type actions, such as waiting for specific windows to appear or
disappear, focusing of windows based on text content, AutoKeys, window popup.
All this is done without needing any knowledge of coding or programming although
advanced users can unleash the power of AutoMate 5™ Professional with the
built-in industry standard Visual Basic for Applications™ compatible Scripting
This Integrated Development Environment allows users to "extend" the core
abilities of AutoMate™, yielding a virtually limitless range of possibilities.
A superb piece of software which will have your repetetive and boring tasks
automated with ease. You have to at least try it.
