Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create A Coda table to save events

The first step is to create a Coda table with all the information you want to save.

Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened event search page and get information like event name, image, group name, date, number of attendees, and more. 

Step 2: Install the extension and map data from scraper to Coda

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. 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 a database and the maximum number of events you would like to save. After you choose the database and maximum number of events,  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. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

Step 3: Run the playbook and save a list of events to Coda

Whenever you want to save event search results to your Coda table first navigate to the search results page.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on a Windows machine on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will get all the relevant information and save it to the Coda database that you specified.

This automation is fantastic for Event Planning. It is highly useful for event planners who need to gather and organize event details quickly and efficiently. They can extract a list of events from the Meetup search result page and save the information to a Coda table. This allows event planners to review and compare different events, including important details such as dates, locations, descriptions, and attendee numbers. They can use this information to make informed decisions about which events to attend or potentially collaborate with other organizers.

Individuals looking for exciting activities and events in their area can also benefit from this automation.

This enables them to keep track of upcoming events, explore different options, and plan their schedule accordingly. They can easily access event details, such as event names, dates, and locations, to decide which events align with their preferences and availability.

In addition, researchers or analysts studying event trends, community engagement, or market dynamics can utilize this automation to gather data efficiently. By extracting event information from Meetup and saving it to a Coda table, they can create a comprehensive dataset for analysis. They can examine event categories, attendance numbers, geographical distribution, or even specific event descriptions. This data-driven approach helps researchers gain insights, identify patterns, and make informed conclusions about the event landscape.
