How does this automation work?

Bardeen's latest workflow utilizes OpenAI to identify actionable tasks within a text selection, conveniently adding them to a Coda table. This is ideal for product development teams and individuals focused on personal productivity, making it easier to capture tasks during research or meetings. With this integration, you can effortlessly convert written or highlighted ideas into structured tasks within your project management tool.

Here's how this workflow turns selected text into Coda tasks:

  • Step 1: Select and right-click text: Initiate the workflow by right-clicking on the webpage text you want to analyze for tasks, triggering the playbook.
  • Step 2: Identify action items with OpenAI: The selected text is processed by OpenAI to extract actionable tasks. These tasks are then ready to be added to your Coda document and table, which you'll define.
  • Step 3: Add tasks to Coda: The identified tasks are added to a Coda table in your specified document, helping you keep track of your to-dos or project tasks seamlessly.

How to run the workflow

Context switching and app switching can hurt productivity. It's easy to get sidetracked when we switch tasks, but sometimes we need to remind ourselves of tasks for later, which can be hard when we're focused on something else.

This automation converts the selected text into a task, and creates a task in Coda with the content.

Automating tasks streamlines workflows and reduces the need for context switching. For instance, creating Jira tickets from anywhere without leaving your current workflow helps you capture your ideas and to-dos quickly, without losing focus on your current task.

Step 1: Set up the automation

Click the “Try it” button at the top of this page to get this Playbook saved.

You will be redirected to download the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Google Mail and Coda if you haven't done so previously.

Bardeen will then prompt you enter the Coda task list and the due date as well as assignee for the task. 

Step 2: Try it!

Press Option + B on Mac or Alt + B on a Window machine on your keyboard to launch Bardeen.

Run the playbook on selected text you want to save as action lists.

By taking advantage of automation tools like this, you can become more efficient and effective in your work. Instead of constantly shifting your attention from one task to another, you can stay focused on the task at hand while still capturing important ideas and tasks for later. This can help you work more productively and ultimately achieve better results.
