Electric Paoge: Browser Scripting with iMacros

Presenter: Casey Mirch, Leadership Public Schools

Description: Plenty of important mass updates you just can't do with built-in imports. Illuminate's help desk is awesome about doing custom data updates. But what if it's after hours, or you just want to do it yourself? Nearly anything you can update in Illuminate with mouse and keyboard and hours of tedium, you can also get your web browser to do on its own. See how to record actions in your browser and replay them using the free, open source "iMacros" extension. Get pointers about tweaking recorded macros to create powerful time-saving tools. Some knowledge of HTML helps.
