I am required to fill in an online database every single day at work with a topic. To do that, every single day I go online, log in with my name and password, select today's date in the calendar, and click on appropriate button to input my topic, then click Save. To make it easier, I already have a Word document with all the topics for each day, so I simply open Writer, copy and paste into a given text area and save.
QUESTION: Can this mind-numbing task be turned into a script or a terminal command so that I could fill in a week's worth of topics with a click of a button?
I assume it is doable, and I would like to ask for some pointers. What knowledge do I need to have in order to do that? I am willing to learn, but I don't know where I should start. I'm not even sure how to ask about this using the right terminology. Could I do it in Python, or would a shell script suffice?
Thank you in advance.
