Second Tutorial

For the second tutorial, we will create a script to open a webpage at user's login.

Script Creation

To do that, we need to give some URL to open and ask automator to open them.

Create a new Application with Automator.

Add Internet >> Get Specified URLs and Display Webpages.
The Display Webpages action accepts web URL in input
and Get Specified URLs provides them.

Don't forget to save it: File >> Save As....

We will now switch to System Preferences from the Dock or the Applications folder.

And select Accounts preference.

Go to Login Items tab and drag the previous application created.

You can now reboot your mac to use this script.
To stop it, go to System Preferences >> Accounts >> Login Items
and delete you application.
