Do you find yourself constantly switching between Product Hunt and Coda to manually copy and paste product details? It's a frustrating and time-consuming process, especially when you have other important tasks to focus on. Fortunately, this automation can help streamline this process for you.
With just a few clicks, you can use this automation to extract essential product information from a Product Hunt page, such as the product name, description, and upvotes, and automatically save it to a Coda table. This automation not only saves you time, but it also ensures that all the necessary details are included in your table.
This automation can be useful in many different scenarios. For example, if you're constantly coming up with new ideas for projects or products, this automation can help you keep track of them all in one place in your Coda table.
Or if you're doing market research on products similar to your own, you can use this automation to easily add them to your Coda table for further analysis. You can also use this automation if you’re a project manager to quickly add new products to your team's Coda table, ensuring everyone stays up to date.
By using this automation, you can simplify your workflow and free up your time to focus on more important tasks. No more wasting time on manual data entry!
Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create a Coda table with all the information you want to capture.
Bardeen will extract information from a product’s page like name, one liner, description, rating, upvotes, link and more.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Coda.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.
Click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify a Coda table. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Coda.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Coda 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 Coda. This will save you time in the future. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
Whenever you want to copy a Product Hunt product to Coda, navigate to the product page in Product Hunt, activate Bardeen (or hit OPTION + B) and run this playbook. It will get all the information from the page and save it to your specified Coda table.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
