Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create a Coda table with the Zapier app details that you want to save.
Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened Zapier app page and save information like integration details, categories, and link. It will then save this information to your database, once your setup is complete.
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.
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 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. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
Whenever you want to save the currently opened Zapier app page information to Coda, navigate the Zapier app page.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will get the information from the page and save it to the Coda table you specified in Step #1.
This automation is fantastic for IT and development teams. It simplifies the process of tracking and managing app details. Whenever a new app is being integrated through Zapier, relevant details such as API endpoints, authentication methods, and data mapping can be automatically collected and stored in a Coda table. This ensures that technical team members have quick access to the information they need to ensure seamless app integration and maintenance.
Digital agencies or freelancers managing multiple client projects can also benefit from this automation. As they set up various apps through Zapier to meet client requirements, the playbook can effortlessly capture and record the app specifics. This information can then be shared with clients in an organized manner using Coda, fostering clear and efficient communication about the tools being used and their functionalities.
Project managers can utilize this automation to maintain comprehensive project documentation. As apps are integrated and updated, their details can be automatically saved in a Coda table linked to each project. This ensures that a centralized record of app usage is maintained, making it easier to track changes, troubleshoot issues, and provide accurate reporting to stakeholders.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
