How does this automation work?

Efficiently managing online resources is crucial for personal productivity. Bardeen's automation playbook "Copy current browser tab to Google Sheets" allows you to capture the URL of your active browser tab and store it in a Google Sheets document effortlessly. This process is ideal for compiling research, organizing bookmarks, and sharing resources with colleagues without leaving your browser.

Here's how this workflow facilitates saving your current browser tab to Google Sheets:

  • Step 1: Get open tabs - Bardeen retrieves a list of all open tabs in the browser. This step ensures we target the correct tab to save.
  • Step 2: Get current page URL - The URL of the current page you are viewing is fetched. This is the link that will be saved to Google Sheets.
  • Step 3: Convert URL to table format - Before adding the URL to Google Sheets, it is converted into a tabular format that is compatible with spreadsheets.
  • Step 4: Add data to Google Sheets - The URL, now in a table format, is appended to your specified Google Sheets document, creating a neat and organized list of your online resources.

How to run the workflow

Doing research or just surfing the internet almost always leads to having too many open browser tabs, and rightly so. We usually need many tabs to keep track of all the information. 

But sometimes, things get messy, and it can be hard to find a specific tab if too many are open.

This automation will help you save the current browser tab to a Google Sheets spreadsheet with one click. It will add the link and title of the tab to a new row.

You can use it to create a database of valuable information so that important tabs never get lost.

Let’s set it up!

Step 1: Create a Google Sheets Spreadsheet

The first step is to create a Google Sheets spreadsheet that will contain the tab information.

Step 2: Run the playbook and start scraping data to Google Sheets

Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbook.

Now you can run this automation on any open tab to save it to your spreadsheet. To do that, activate Bardeen (or hit OPTİON + B) and run this playbook when you come across an interesting browser tab.

Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Google Sheets when you run the playbook. It will not ask for the spreadsheet again, saving you time.  You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook. 

💪Pro tip: You can use our other playbook, save the currently opened tab to Notion and use Notion as your database.
