Workflow Overview

This workflow automates adding contacts to HubSpot by right-clicking selected text on a webpage.
  • Selected text on a webpage (including name and email)
  • New contact created in HubSpot

This workflow facilitates a seamless way to add contacts to HubSpot directly from a webpage. By right-clicking selected text, you can forward it to HubSpot as a new contact entry.

The process begins by setting up a context menu option that appears when the user right-clicks on a page. When this option is selected, the workflow captures the text highlighted by the user, splits it to identify the first name, last name, and email address, and finally creates a new contact in HubSpot with this information. This is particularly useful for:

  • Adding leads while browsing online directories
  • Quickly capturing contact information from email signatures or webpages
Note: The split function assumes the selected text includes a name and email in a recognizable format. The workflow can be adjusted to accommodate different text structures or additional information.

This integration demonstrates the power and flexibility of Bardeen's automation capabilities, especially in enhancing CRM management tasks. It saves time and reduces the manual effort of entering contact details into HubSpot.
