Here are 3 example UiPath workflows that use "Invoke Method"


Example 1: Automating the Generation of Sales Reports


Step 1: Retrieve Sales Data - Use the "Excel Read Range" activity to retrieve the sales data from an Excel spreadsheet.


Step 2: Use the Invoke Method activity to generate the sales report. Set the "Method Name" property to "GenerateSalesReport", the "Target Type" property to the appropriate API or class responsible for generating sales reports, and the "Parameters" property to the sales data obtained in step 1.


Step 3: Send the Report - Use the "Send Email" activity to send the generated sales report to relevant stakeholders.


Step 4: Save the Report - Use the "Excel Write Range" activity to save the generated sales report to an Excel spreadsheet for future reference.



Example 2: Automating Invoicing


Step 1: Retrieve Customer Information - Use the "Excel Read Range" activity to retrieve customer information from an Excel spreadsheet.


Step 2: Use the Invoke Method activity to create an invoice. Set the "Method Name" property to "CreateInvoice", the "Target Type" property to the appropriate API or class responsible for generating invoices, and the "Parameters" property to the customer information obtained in step 1.


Step 3: Send the Invoice - Use the "Send Email" activity to send the generated invoice to the customer.


Step 4: Save the Invoice - Use the "Excel Write Range" activity to save the generated invoice to an Excel spreadsheet for future reference.



Example 3: Automating the Order Fulfillment Process


Step 1: Retrieve Order Information - Use the "Excel Read Range" activity to retrieve order information from an Excel spreadsheet.


Step 2: Use the Invoke Method activity to fulfill the order. Set the "Method Name" property to "FulfillOrder", the "Target Type" property to the appropriate API or class responsible for fulfilling orders, and the "Parameters" property to the order information obtained in step 1.


Step 3: Send Shipping Confirmation - Use the "Send Email" activity to send a shipping confirmation to the customer.


Step 4: Update Order Status - Use the "Excel Write Range" activity to update the order status in the Excel spreadsheet to reflect that the order has been fulfilled.


These are three examples of how a small business could utilize the Invoke Method activity in UiPath to automate various processes. The specific activities used in each workflow will vary depending on the specific needs of the business, but the basic concept of using the Invoke Method activity to call methods and automate processes remains the same.



More in depth details about the Invoke Method activity itself:


The Invoke Method activity in UiPath allows you to call a method from a .NET assembly or a Java class. It is used to invoke a method of a .NET object or a Java class, passing the required parameters, and returning the result of the method call, if any.


Here's how you can use the Invoke Method activity in UiPath:

  1. Drag and drop the Invoke Method activity from the Activities panel onto the design surface.

  2. In the Properties panel, set the Method Name property to the name of the method you want to call.

  3. Set the Target Type property to the type of the object that contains the method. You can either choose a .NET Assembly or a Java class.

  4. Set the Parameters property to specify the parameters that will be passed to the method. The parameters can be either constant values or variables.

  5. You can set the Return Type property to specify the expected return type of the method. This is optional.

  6. Connect the Invoke Method activity to other activities in the workflow to use the result of the method call, if any.
