Presentation Topic Description

I perform a daily task in Alma where I click on the Resources menu, then Monitor and View Imports, Manual Handling Required, select 20 checkboxes, initiate the Merge Records and Combine Inventory job, and then submit the job. The whole process is rather click-intensive and tedious to do manually. By using Javascript and Chrome's Developer Console, I can automate this repetitive task and let it run in the background while I perform other work.
