Are you caught in the web of manually gathering LinkedIn profile information from group members, only to find it a time-consuming and cumbersome task? This struggle is a familiar one for professionals seeking to expand their networks and extract valuable insights.
This automation takes the hassle out of the equation by smoothly extracting LinkedIn profile details from group members and securely storing them in a Coda table. No more tedious copying and pasting, no more data entry headaches.
Whether you're building professional connections, scouting potential candidates, or conducting market research, this automation streamlines the process and lets you focus on what truly matters.
Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create a Coda table 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 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 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 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.
