UiPath provides you with the puzzle pieces to automate. These are called UiPath activities. Now if the puzzle pieces are not there, you may get them from the Community marketplace or may have to create them by yourself.
Now UiPath has an easier way to create these Custom activities – the UiPath Activity Creator. It allows you to easily create custom activities that work immediately in UiPath Studio. The new extension is entirely wizard-based, meaning you simply fill in fields like activity name, description, properties, types, and the entire activity code is generated which includes:
- Designers (UI)
- Property Fields
- Localization files
- Package Metadata
After this, you just add the execution logic for your activity and you’re done!

All that is generated for you in Visual Studio. By making it easier to create custom activities, you can help expand the UiPath RPA ecosystem that benefits you and the community.
