Whenever you need to do something repetitively, say for example go back and delete a bunch of posts on your WordPress blog, you end up doing it over and over again. This can be really time-consuming, so luckily there are some tools that can make your life easier. In this article we will discuss batch processing with Actions – an action is a set that can be launched by another action to run repetitive tasks in your computer automation.
What is batch processing?
Batch processing is a process of completing multiple tasks or operations in a single step. This can save time and resources because it eliminates the need to repeat the same steps repeatedly. For example, batch processing can be used to send large files by email or to process customer orders.
How does batch processing work?
Batch processing relies on tools that can automate the task of performing multiple tasks. These tools allow you to specify what needs to be done, and then the tool will take care of doing it for you.
How to automate your work flow
Creating actions for batch processing can save you time and help you streamline your workflow. Here are three tips to get started:
1. Use a task manager to automate common tasks. For example, use a task manager to schedule emails or downloads. You can also use a task manager to create and schedule simple reports.
2. Use Automator scripts to speed up your work. Automator scripts can automate common tasks, such as opening files, copying files, and sending emails.
3. Use Automator variables to customize your work flow. You can use Automator variables to store information about your work, such as the name of the file being copied or the email address being sent.
