If you love using Reddit, you know how much time it takes to save posts for later. But you can save time using this automation. It automatically grabs info from Reddit posts and stores it in your Coda database. This is really helpful if you have a lot of data to keep track of.
You don't have to do it manually. It saves time and makes it easier to organize your Reddit content. Try it out and see how much easier it makes your life as a Reddit fan!
Let's set it up.
The first step is to create a Coda with the information that you want to capture.
Bardeen will extract information from the currently opened Reddit post and get information like title, post, link, author, author link, subreddit name, descriptions and much more.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbook. If you run it for the first time, you will be prompted to install the browser extension. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate with Coda.
Click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start.
You will be asked to specify an Coda database. 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 check Coda. You can edit inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
Whenever you want to save a Reddit post and its information, activate Bardeen (or hit OPTİON + B) and run this playbook from the post’s page. Bardeen will extract all the post, author and subreddit information and save it to your Coda with one click.
This playbook saves me hours when I’m sending out emails. It usually takes me 20 minutes to get the data and format it into an email. This playbook will help me go from my LinkedIn account to drafted email in 5 minutes!
This playbook saves me 60-90 minutes that I'd spend copy-pasting 20 new jobs details from LinkedIn daily - now it only takes me 5 minutes. Gamechanger!
