sign on page hurdle when downloading file from URL

Hello, I receive an email each day that includes a link to a spreadsheet, which I would like to ultimately place in google drive.  I was successful in getting the basics of this to work through a zap thanks to this post, however it appears as though when Zapier accesses the URL it goes to a sign on page. Is there a  step I can add in  to have it enter the sign on information?

Hi @devon75 

Zapier is best suited for the transform and transfer of data behind the scenes between apps.

What you’ve described is front end scripting automation to simulate user behavior. (e.g. logging in and clicking a button)
