Robot pools are a design object that enable you to group robots based on their unique roles and capabilities. Robot pools can ensure that there is always a robot available and ready to handle any robotic task execution. This page discusses managing robots in the Operations Console.

If you are new to Appian RPA, see the Robot Pools topic in the Learn section for an introduction to robot pools.
