Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create an Airtable with LinkedIn profile information that you want to save.
Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened LinkedIn group members page and extract LinkedIn profile information like name, skills, languages, current company information, contact information and more. 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 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 an Airtable and the maximum number of profiles you would like to save from the group members page. After you choose the destination and maximum number, 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.
