How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation workflow provides a seamless way to summarize web content and save it to Google Docs. This is immensely useful for research, data sourcing, and personal productivity. With the ability to extract and summarize information from any webpage, you can now have a concise version of the data stored in your Google Docs for future reference. This eliminates the need for manual copy-pasting and summarizing, thereby saving time and increasing efficiency.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Get current page as HTML: The first step involves capturing the HTML of the current webpage you're on. This provides the raw data for the next steps.
  2. Convert HTML to text: The HTML captured from the previous step is then converted into plain text, making it easier for subsequent processing.
  3. Get a summary of the text: The plain text is then fed into OpenAI, an artificial intelligence platform, to generate a summary of the content. This provides a concise version of the webpage's content.
  4. Add text to Google Doc: The summarized text is then appended to a specified Google Doc. Google Docs is a versatile online word processor that allows for real-time collaborative editing.

With this workflow, you can quickly and efficiently summarize and store important information from webpages directly into Google Docs.
