Let’s set it up!

Please be aware that the excessive or abusive use of extensions, bots, or automation tools on some websites can lead to penalties, including temporary or even permanent restrictions on your account. We recommend you read and adhere to the specific terms of the websites you are visiting and using to avoid any disruptions or issues. We do not assume any responsibility for the consequences of abuse.

Step 1: Create an Airtable

The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information you want to save from the LinkedIn post.

Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened LinkedIn post like author, translated summary, post link, author link, social signals like reactions and reposts, post date, and more. It will then save all this information to your Airtable, once your setup is complete.

Step 2: Integrate Airtable and LinkedIn post data scraper

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. If it’s your first time using Bardeen, you will be redirected to install the extension.

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 an Airtable and enter a target language. The summary will be translated to the target language that you enter. After you choose the database and target language, 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: Scrape a LinkedIn post's translated summary and save it to Airtable

Whenever you want to save a summary of a LinkedIn post, navigate to the post, activate Bardeen (or hit OPTION + B) and run this playbook. 

It will capture all the information from the currently opened LinkedIn post and save it to Airtable.

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