Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with the information you want to save.
Bardeen will find the currently opened company’s headcount. It will then get the company’s headcount and save the information to your Airtable, 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 Airtable.
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 the Airtable that will contain the information. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable 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 Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
When you want to get the current company and that company’s headcount from a LinkedIn company profile, activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard).
It will get the currently opened LinkedIn company profile’s headcount. It will then save the information to your Airtable.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
