For the longest time, I've been manually entering fields for my invoices. Today, I made a quick Python script that would first ask me the invoice number and the amount of money I'm being paid. Then, it automatically opens up the web page where I generate invoices and automatically fills out the form, submits it, and then lets me review and download it myself.

Here's a .gif of the automation in action: View: https://imgur.com/a/tqvfiqm


This is a very small automation, but here are the steps I do each time I make an invoice.
- Visit the website
- Go through my email to find my previous invoice and what it was numbered.
- Copy and paste all the information from the previous invoice regarding notes, description, payment information, recipient, amount, etc...
- Press submit button

This could take me a good 2 - 3 minutes each time. But now with this script, it takes less than 5 seconds and all I have to do is review the final .pdf document before downloading it. What sort of things have you automated?
