I’m trying to automate filling out sign-up forms for COVID vaccine appointments, because you have to go through several pages, submitting info, before they tell you whether or not there are any appointments available. This will probably go on for weeks, checking 5-6 different websites several times a day. I’d like to build a set of macros that checks them all every 5-10 minutes, 16 hours a day, to sound an alarm and send a text message if it ever gets to the end of a website’s form chain and doesn’t see the text, “Sorry there are no appointments available…”
Unfortunately, it appears many of these web pages have “forms” that aren’t real HTML forms. With a page displayed in Safari containing checkboxes, Keyboard Maestro’s “Set Safari Checkbox” action reports “No checkboxes found.”
These websites take you through 3 or 4 pages, sometimes adding new form elements just below a Next button you click. It may be more than KM’s Safari actions can handle. But otherwise, I’m reduced to iffy “Found Image” actions.
Here’s an example: https://www.mhealthappointments.com/covidappt
I can’t get KM to see the zip code field or the radio buttons below.
Any ideas on how I can automate filling out these pages without using “Found Image” actions?
P.S. I posted this issue on the Keyboard Maestro forum, and have many views, but no responses after 24 hours.
