How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook allows you to conveniently save a list of Meetup events directly to Airtable, simplifying the process of gathering and organizing event data. For businesses and researchers who rely on attending or analyzing events, this workflow automates the manual task of data entry. The automation can be particularly valuable for event managers, marketers, and data analysts who regularly source and compile event information.

Here's how this workflow captures Meetup events and stores them in Airtable:

  • Step 1: Scrape Meetup events - The Scraper integration is utilized to collect data from your active browser tab, specifically extracting event details from Meetup search results. You can specify the maximum number of events to scrape by providing the desired number.
  • Step 2: Add events to Airtable - Bardeen then takes the scraped event details and creates new records in an Airtable base. The Airtable integration combines the simplicity of a spreadsheet with the power of a database, making it easy to manage your event data.
