Let’s set it up!
First, click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to save this automation. You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Google Sheets.
Before setting up the playbook, you need to do some Google Sheets prep work.
You database must have at least these four fields/columns:
I had to add a script that performs some data cleanup. The reason being that Linkedin's code for the first commenters is different from the one of the subsequent ones.
For this reason the name and url of the commenters form the second "page" onwards need to be cleaned.
You'll just have to click on the "Clean Names" button to let the script do its magic. (You'll have to autorize it first. Don't worry about the menacing message, the script is just cleaning the data in the sheet)
Feel free to add as many other fields/columns as you like but only after column D.
Here's the template you can copy:
Click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify a Google Sheets spreadsheet or to create one from scratch.
The most critical step is mapping the data of the LinkedIn post to the right field.
The logic is identical to another automation I've done, you can watch this video at the minute 3:50 to see how to do it.
Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened LinkedIn post and get comment information like name, profile link, profile image, comment, time commented, and connection degree. It will then save all this information to your Google Sheets spreadsheet, once the setup is complete.
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Google Sheets. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
When you want to scrape LinkedIn post commenters to Google Sheets, follow the steps below for some black magic.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
This playbook saves me hours when I’m sending out emails. It usually takes me 20 minutes to get the data and format it into an email. This playbook will help me go from my LinkedIn account to drafted email in 5 minutes!
This playbook saves me 60-90 minutes that I'd spend copy-pasting 20 new jobs details from LinkedIn daily - now it only takes me 5 minutes. Gamechanger!
