How to Create Automation with Browser Automation (App has no API or way to builk upload leads)

Hey guys wondering if anyone has ideas about this problem I'm trying to solve.

I'm an advertiser that generates leads for my clients.

I have a couple of clients that want me to submit leads to them through their referral system... which currently has no API or built in way to automatically, or bulk upload lead data.

(They say it's being worked on but that could mean months of years.)

So I'm trying to find a way to set a trigger in Zapier that grabs new lead info from a google sheet and then uses some kind of browser automation to navigate to the login page, login, fill out the referral form with the data collected in the trigger, and then submit it.

Anyone have any recommendations for tools that could accomplish this?

Thanks!

Hi @Mason-RecursiveAdvertising 

Do some GSearches around “Robotic Process Automation” aka “RPA”: https://www.google.com/search?q=robotic+process+automation
