How does this automation work?

Bardeen connects Google Sheets to your browser to automate the process of generating full-page PDF screenshots of websites. The automation extracts a list of website links from a Google Sheets spreadsheet, visits each website, and downloads a full-page PDF screenshot. This could be particularly useful for market research, competitor analysis, or archiving websites.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Get table from Google Sheet - Bardeen retrieves the content of a specified Google Sheets spreadsheet and transforms it into a table. You will need to specify the Google Sheet to use.
  2. Extract column data - From the table obtained from the Google Sheet, Bardeen extracts a specified column that contains the website links. You will need to specify the column name.
  3. Find all links - This step processes the extracted column data and identifies all the website links.
  4. Get page as PDF - Bardeen then visits each website link and captures a full-page PDF screenshot.
  5. Download object as file - Finally, the PDF screenshot is downloaded for your use.
