I've created macros that are supposed to allow me to automatically log on to certain webpages that I use on daily basis. However, an issue I keep on encountering is that despite the username and password fields were already auto-filled by Chrome, somehow when the macro runs and submits the form the page acts as if I've left those fields blank. See image.
Also, is there a way to trigger the macro whenever a certain URL is open, but without costing too much CPU?
I'm guessing the fields aren't registering that they have been filled.
What happens if you fill them using the macro and then:
- Manually click in each field.
- Then Submit the form.
You can monitor Google Chrome window URLs, but that's really a waste.
In general I really wouldn't want something like this running without my direct authorization.
I use 1Password for filling log-ins.
Also: did you use "paste" or "type" to fill the form?
In my experience "type" actions will register more often than "paste" actions.
