When making a list of jobs to apply to, the most frustrating part is manually copy-pasting all of the information to your Airtable.
This automation allows you to create a new job entry with a shortcut. It's a form that you can fill out on any website at once. This way, you don’t need to switch tabs back and forth 10 times. All the data will be sent directly to your Airtable.
You will need an Airtable sheet to send your jobs to. You can create one from scratch or duplicate our template optimized for this use case.
Click the “Try it” button at the top of this page to run the automation. You will be redirected to download the browser extension when you run it for the first time.
Then you will be asked to specify Airtable where to send the information.
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. You can Edit Inputs later by covering over the playbook.
Then, you will be asked to fill out the following fields that will go directly to your coda database.
You can add custom fields to this form. For example, how excited are you about this position? Let's make this an option that we can fill out.
Hover over the Playbook card and click on “Open Playbook in Builder.”
Find the “Add data to Airtable” action and click on it. From there, we can "create new columns."
You can make some column values to be fixed such as Source = "Manually added.” Alternatively, you can input new data every time you run the automation. Click on the "Ask me every time" argument.
Here's an example of how this will look like (with Notion):
Now, save the Playbook and close the builder. Start using your customized playbook!
