How to run the workflow

Sorting through long PDF files in Dropbox can be a drag, especially when you're hunting for specific information. That’s where our automation powered by OpenAI comes in handy! It pulls text from a PDF file stored in Dropbox and provides you with a concise summary, saving you time and effort.

Let's talk about the challenges you might face without this automation. Manually reading through dense documents can eat up a lot of your time, and it’s easy to overlook important points buried in the text. With our tool, you get the main takeaways quickly, letting you zero in on what's crucial.

So, how can you put this automation to use? Whether you’re a researcher analyzing academic papers or a professional reviewing reports, this tool makes your work smoother and more efficient. Instead of sifting through pages, get straight to the summary and make more informed decisions faster! Let automation handle the heavy lifting while you focus on the bigger picture.

Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Pin the playbook and integrate Dropbox

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 Dropbox.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on a Windows machine on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. Bardeen will ask you to specify the PDF file in Dropbox.

Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Dropbox. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 2: Run the automation to extract and summarize text in a PDF file in Dropbox using OpenAI

Open Bardeen, and click on the Playbook card. 

Bardeen will ask for the PDF file in Dropbox. Then the playbook will extract the text from a PDF file in Dropbox using Bardeen, summarize the text using OpenAI, and display the summary on the screen for you.
