Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information you want to capture.
Bardeen will extract information from the emails like subject line, body, sender, date, CC, link to email, labels and more.
It will also save email attachments to Google Drive and add a link to the email if any attachments are present.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable and Gmail.

Click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start.
You will be asked to enter a before date and an after date. Choose the timeframes you like. Bardeen will find all emails in the specified time frame and save them to your Airtable. Bardeen will also ask you for a folder in Google Drive for your attachments and a limit for the maximum number of emails you would like to extract.
After you choose the dates, the database and the maximum number of emails to extract, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark the inputs you would like to save. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
