There is no trick, you just need the right "tool"

In my case, I bought a transmission oil filling "tool" from
Murrays Automotive ( discount auto chain here in Michigan )
which is really no more than a large syringe with a 1/4 inch
ID nylon plastic tube on the end. You need to fill this
stupid syringe repeatedly, perhaps eight or ten times, but
IT GETS THE JOB DONE ( even though there is oil all over
your clothes, hands, face ... perhaps I'm just messy ... ).

If I remember, it cost about six or seven bucks.
