      Nice blog thanks. Have one question. How the bot decides which purchase order to be printed.

      Hi Pranil, For this demo i had hard coded the purchase order number..But, the bot can be automated to read the purchase order number at run time... for example if the users get emails to print purchase order, the bot can be automated to  read the purchase order from an email and this functionality can be extended further for the bot to reply to the email with the print purchase order..

      Ah ok. I was just thinking from practical point of view. Thanks for explaining it with an example.
