I am trying to automate clicking “Add to Cart”, once an item comes into stock.
I have two issues:
I can not configure a macro to click a button for an out of stock item, because “Add to Cart” never appears on the website, unless the item is in stock. There doesn’t seem to be a way to do define what element is clicked when creating a macro. Is is possible to edit an action and replace the text in an element with what is expected?
Macros seem to be to prepare a website for monitoring, but I would like to run the macro when the alert triggers. Is there a way to make running a macro an “Action”?
These two things would allow me to automatically add an item to my cart, once it comes into stock.
Hello @jessedabill, welcome to the community forum and thanks for your post!
Macros are currently only supported in cloud monitors because it is easier to record and automate the actions there. The good news is that we are currently working on supporting macros in browser extension too. This will also enable Distill to use the browser to run macros as actions (this is the most common scenario so far).
What will be your preferred way to run macro actions - in cloud or locally using the extension?
Thanks! The extensions lag a bit. Because this feature was added very recently, it is only available at monitor.distill.io. Can you try using that? The extensions should get updated version in about 2 weeks.
