Create a job entry in Coda

This playbook will create a new job entry in a Coda table.

When you research job opportunities, saving the most interesting ones is the key. But the process is tedious and has tons of context-switching and copy-pasting.

This automation allows you to create a new job entry with a shortcut. It's a form that you can fill out from any website, and all the data will be sent to Coda.

Step 1: Set up a job tracking template in Coda

First, you will need to set up a Coda database for your jobs. You can create one from scratch or duplicate our template optimized for this use case.

Step 2: Run the Playbook

Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.

When you run this, you'll be asked to fill out the following fields.

  • Position
  • Company
  • Job Listing URL
  • Contact for the job

Optional: Add customized fields to this automation

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 a Coda table” action and click on it. From there, we can "create new columns" in our sheet.

You can make some column values to be fixed (e.g. Source = "Manually added"). Alternatively, you can input an argument every time you run the automation. Click on the "Ask me every time" argument.

Here's an example from Notion:

Now save the Playbook and close the builder. Start using your customized playbook!
