How to run the workflow

This automation streamlines your workflow by effortlessly transferring data from your Github project to Airtable. No more manual copy-pasting or tedious data entry! 

With this automation, you can seamlessly sync your project's information with a few simple steps. Whether you're a developer managing multiple repositories or a project manager coordinating tasks, this automation saves you valuable time and eliminates the risk of human error. 

Say goodbye to the frustration of toggling between platforms and hello to increased efficiency. From copying issue details to updating milestones and labels, this automation ensures your data stays up-to-date across platforms. 

Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create an Airtable

The first step is to create an Airtable with the Github project information you want to save.

Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened Github Project like links, stars, contributors, forks, license and more. It will then save all this information to your Airtable once the setup is complete.

Step 2: Install the extension and run the playbook

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.

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

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. 

You will be asked to specify the Airtable you created in Step #1. After you choose the database, 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 Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 3: Run the automation to copy Github project data to Airtable

When you want to save information from a Github project to Airtable with one click, navigate to the Github project page.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will get all the information from the page and save it to your database.

This automation is fantastic if you want to simplify the task of managing technical projects. Project managers can automatically sync issue details, milestones, and progress updates from Github to their Airtable workspace. This allows for seamless collaboration, efficient tracking of tasks, and real-time visibility into project status.

For technical recruiters, this automation streamlines the process of gathering and organizing candidate information. Recruiters can effortlessly copy relevant details from Github, such as repositories, contributions, and commit history, directly into their Airtables. This helps recruiters evaluate candidates' technical expertise, track their open-source contributions, and make informed hiring decisions.

This automation also enhances developer collaboration by synchronizing Github data with Airtable. Teams can seamlessly integrate their code repositories, pull requests, and issue tracking with their Airtable workspace. This enables developers to have a centralized hub for project information, allowing for streamlined communication, efficient task management, and improved productivity.

You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
