Once, a long time ago, a shovel was a marvel of modern technology. Today, a shovel is $3.99 at the hardware store. Who says the same won't happen with robotics ?

Automate Sheet > Delay until date > Notify Slack

I have a sheet that automaticaly fills every cell when a sale is made, and one of this cells is the date of renew from that specific client.

What i want is a automation that delays for a specif amount of days or months or to a specif date, and then sends a message in slack with a notification about that client.

Its simple i know, my problem is that i usually do everything in zapier and im not used to other plataforms, and zapier can only delay something by a maximum of 1 month...

I would need more than one month, my clients usually sign contracts of 3months, 6 and 1 year.

So my question is, how would i do this? is there any plataform that does what zapier does but lets you delay actions by more than one month? i would realllllly love to have it up to 1 year.

Got tired of filling job application so I automated it

Hey everyone! I got tired of filling out job applications with the same repetitive information, so I built a tool to automate the process.

What's the goal of the tool?

  • Increase your Chances: Send more applications than before.
  • Save Time: Fill out applications much faster by automating repetitive steps.

This is my first time building something like this, so I would love to hear what you think. Any kind of feedback is appreciated :)

AnswerThis is a Research Tool but it writes the best SEO blogs for some reason

I thought this would be appropriate for an Automate subreddit, perhaps I should post this to a blogs sub subreddit to but I was shocked when I found this out.

AnswerThis - A tool for researchers - is surprisingly good at writing high SEO content for blogs.

I've made 3 now and every single one of them is rated highly by Yoast and they all have been performing very well.

All I needed to type into the AI was "write a high value, high SEO blog for the top 5 AI tools in the research space" and it came back with 15 sources from research papers and internet sources to go into immense detail for the prompt.

Highly recommend you give it a go if you want to make a blog!

Introducing 'Mark': A Markdown Tool for GPT4o

Hey r/Automate,

I'm excited to announce the launch of Mark, a brand-new CLI tool that uses Markdown to interact with the GPT4-vision and GPT4o models.

What is Mark?

Mark allows you to leverage Markdown file/syntax when interacting with GPT models, this provides a natural and efficient way to incorporate links and images as context for the LLM.

Key Features:

  • In-Document Thread Building: Facilitate a threaded conversation directly in your Markdown document.
  • GPT Vision with Image Tags: Utilize GPT-4's vision capabilities.
  • Effective RAG Retrieval Using Links: Simple and intuitive method to include relevant documents as context.
  • Custom System Prompts: Personalize interactions with custom system prompts.

Why Did I Create Mark?

As someone who spends a lot of time writing and managing content, I needed a tool that was both flexible and efficient. Proprietary writing apps that incorporate AI are too restrictive. Other open-source tools require scripting to use the latest GPT features. Mark was developed to solve these pain points using the simplicity and versatility of Markdown, allowing for a natural workflow that integrates smoothly with my everyday tasks.

Why Your Feedback Matters

Since Mark is brand new, I'm eager to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Your feedback will be invaluable in refining the tool and making it even more useful for everyone.

Feel free to try it out and share your experience!

Check out github.com/relston/mark and leave your feedback here or post an issue. Thank you!

How AI Automation Revolutionized My LinkedIn Game!!

Hey Redditors,

I wanted to share a little story about a recent project that has completely transformed how I manage my LinkedIn presence, and I think it might resonate with many of you here.

A few months ago, I found myself struggling to keep up with posting quality content on LinkedIn regularly. As someone who understands the importance of maintaining an active and engaging presence, this was a major roadblock. I knew I needed a solution that could help me stay consistent without consuming all my time.

Enter AI automation.

I decided to build an AI-driven workflow to tackle this problem. Here’s what I did:

  1. Content Gathering: I set up a system to fetch trending articles from various sources in my field of interest.

  2. Review & Approval: These articles are then collected in a Google Sheet where I review them. If I find an article particularly useful, I approve it.

  3. AI Analysis: Once approved, the article is analyzed by an AI that crafts a compelling post based on the content.

  4. Formatting: The AI also formats this post into a beautiful PDF carousel.

  5. Final Review & Posting: The formatted post comes back to me for a final review in the Google Sheet. Once approved, it gets posted to my LinkedIn profile.

This entire process now takes me just about 5 minutes daily. The result? I’m able to consistently post 5-6 deep, visually appealing, and engaging posts every single day.

What started as a solution to my own problem has shown me the incredible potential of AI automation. It’s not just about social media – the applications for businesses, individuals, and startups are endless.

I’m curious, have any of you explored AI automation in your workflows? What has your experience been like? If anyone is struggling with similar issues or is interested in the potential of AI automation, I’d love to hear your thoughts and maybe even share some insights.

Cheers to working smarter, not harder!

Need help with automating pdf data extraction

im currently a student and have around 400 question papers in form of pdfs which i'd instead like to be sorta "broken off" into individual questions, be it by taking screenshots of specific portions of the page or OCR (i'd prefer the former since questions include a lot of math which gets butchered in plaintext). each question paper includes on average around 60 questions which makes it around 24000 questions in total. im a pretty dumb guy and have no knowledge about this stuff nor do i have hours to spend on manually performing this and was wondering if there was ANY way to automate this, paid or free.

optionally (if possible) -

  1. to be able to automatically tag the image/txt file with subject, chapter name, question type
  2. to be able to somehow be linked to its solution (present right below the question in the pdf.)

Are intel reports for govt generated by AI/automation now? You read about how they gather intel or get a commission to do something, but, has AI/Chat taken that over? I can imagine it would be better if they get it working, from what I understand it's still people that do it?

govts using intelligence reports using AI as opposed to people?

Make.com : how to extract the body of a post?

Hey everyone,

Would appreciate some help... I've been spending hours and I can only extract the title of a Reddit post and the comments under the post... but not the body itself....


Edit: more information abt what I'm trying to do:

There's a module called "watch new comments in a subreddit," in which I can extract the title of the post in which the comment has been made, and also other information about the comment and the post (the name of the subthreadthe link to the post, the number of upvotes, for example).

Ex: I want to extract comments from  . Let's say there's a post titled: "I love SF sm" with a body: "I've lived here for 10 yrs and I still think it's the best place ever. Does anyone disagree?" and there's a comment in the post that says "same." I can extract the "same" comment and the title "I love SF sm" but I can't extract the body : "I've lived here for 10 yrs and I still think it's the best place ever. Does anyone disagree?"

If I want to add the information to a google sheet, I can add the title of the post, the comment beneath the post, the name of the subthread () in which the comment exists, BUT NOT the body of the post.

How do you get past TikTok's Unoriginal, low-quality content with AI content?

I just created a couple pages that I'm experimenting with on TikTok to create AI content and every time I post, my videos get immediate ineligibility for going on the FYP with the "Unoriginal, low-quality, and QR code content". I use AI voice, subtitles, over a minute long, and brand new background content that hasn't been posted before. Is there a way to get around this?? or do I just keep posting and try to get luck

before anyone says "hur dur well maybe it's because it's unoriginal". I know, just asking if there are ways to bypass this or to minimize it.
