How does this automation work?

Bardeen offers a seamless way to save information directly from your web browsing experience into Google Sheets. This Playbook provides a simple but powerful tool for researchers, content curators, and anyone who frequently collects data from the internet, allowing for the quick capture of text without breaking the flow of their work.

Here's how this workflow will save the selected text to Google Sheets with a simple right-click:

  • Step 1: Capture selected text: When you right-click on a webpage, Bardeen captures the selected text. This step is the trigger for the automation flow.
  • Step 2: Append to Google Sheets: The selected text is then automatically added to your specified Google Sheets spreadsheet. Google Sheets is a powerful online spreadsheet tool that allows for collaboration and data analysis.
  • Step 3: Confirmation notification: After the text is saved, a browser notification will confirm the action and provide a link to the Google Sheets document.

How to run the workflow
