Let’s set it up!

Please be aware that the excessive or abusive use of extensions, bots, or automation tools on some websites can lead to penalties, including temporary or even permanent restrictions on your account. We recommend you read and adhere to the specific terms of the websites you are visiting and using to avoid any disruptions or issues. We do not assume any responsibility for the consequences of abuse.

Step 1: Create an Airtable

The first step is to create an Airtable with all the information from the LinkedIn posts you would like to save.

Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened LinkedIn post search results page like name, summary, date, comments, reactions, reposts, and profile link. It will then save all this information to your Airtable once your setup is complete. 

Step 2: Install the extension and map the information to Airtable

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 to save the LinkedIn post information.

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 posts you would like to extract and summarize. After you choose the database and post 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. 

Step 3: Run the playbook and save LinkedIn post summaries from search to Airtable

Whenever you want to save LinkedIn posts and get summaries of each post, navigate to the LinkedIn post search results page.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will extract all the repost, comments and reaction information as well as summaries from each post and save the information to the Airtable that you specified in Step #1.

This automation is fantastic for businesses. It can be a game-changer in conducting market research and competitor analysis. By extracting and summarizing relevant LinkedIn posts, companies can quickly gather insights into industry trends, customer preferences, and competitor strategies. This data can then be used to make informed decisions and stay ahead in the market.

Social media managers and content creators can also use this automation to curate high-quality content for their LinkedIn profiles or company pages. By summarizing the most engaging and informative posts, they can share valuable insights with their audience, increasing engagement and building a strong online presence.

Individuals who want to stay informed and continuously learn about their areas of interest can benefit from this automation. It saves them the time and effort of manually browsing through numerous posts and helps them focus on the most relevant and informative content. Whether it's industry news, expert opinions, or thought-provoking discussions, this automation ensures that users never miss out on valuable knowledge from the LinkedIn community.

You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
