Hi, at my work every worker has an account for sears.com because the store is right across the street from us and we very often need to buy items from the store to accommodate the tasks that we are managing. How it works is everyones account has “points” loaded to it and when someone buys an item for a job my co workers log into their sears account and pay for the item with points. Once they pay with points the points gets deducted from the sears.com account.
My job is to log into everyones account every day and log how many points everyone has in the account. Whenever someones points balance changes I know that a purchase was made and I have to give the coworkers a paper to fill out so the item they purchased with the points can be logged.
I have 24 coworkers so that is 24 accounts I have to log in and get the balance on every day. Typically how I log into the accounts is I open up google chrome and I have 24 bookmarks to open “sears.com” (when I click the folder and open all bookmarks, all 24 tabs load). See photo below
Then I click on each tab and click the “login” button. I do that with all 24 tabs.
Then I have a list with user names and passwords. I copy and paste the user names and passwords into the correct fields and once I log in it usually shows the points balance on the top of the page.
In the example below the account has 20,143 points and that is equivilant to $20.14 US dollars.
Then I just close that tab out and write the number of points down and put the next user account info into the next page (and I do that till I have all the account balances on all 24 accounts).
Sears must have recently changed the programming however because now when I log into the first account the correct balance shows but when I close the tab and log into the next account, it shows the same balance as the previous tab. So for example if account 1 has 25,000 points (which is worth $25) all other accounts will show $25 because it must be saving a cookie or something. So since last week I have to do one at time, and close the entire page out after each login. When I do that then it shows the correct balance for each account.
I was wondering if there is an easier way to do this? I know some programming on VB6 but I never did any programming with any webpages using VB6. Any ideas where to start my research would be much appreciated!
