We all need a solution for this scenario where we get the input in a queue form which can be either Excel, DB or Orchestrator queue. And the solution is a File Watcher, it checks the folder on continuous basis and provide syou the queue of file locations.

This UiPath BOT monitors a specific folder for new files in that folder. The files which are created in last x (any number) minutes will be picked up by the BOT. The extracted files from the folder will be logged in an Excel queue. The queue contains the location of the file, created time, unique ID for each file.

This BOT is very useful in monitoring the activities in a folder and picked up files can be used as the input for another process. The BOT can be scheduled to run 24X7 every x minutes to not lose any file.
