Hi @rodberry, unfortunately this use case is not yet feasible through Bardeen because it doesn’t support dynamic input yet. Bardeen is currently working on a Web Agent that will be able to click and input on the web, it’s currently in beta testing.
Thanks Jess for clearing that up. Looks like the beta testing link is no longer alive, so they must have enough testers already. It’s great to hear that Bardeen are working on it and have it in beta already.
Can anyone suggest any other browser-based way of doing this? I’m using a locked-down corporate machine on which I can’t install or run anything natively.
Are there browser-based mouse and keyboard record/playback extensions for automation in the browser? I’m guessing not but I’ll take a look around.
Yes, I imagine that navigating between tabs is not trivial. I’d be content with opening a new tab with a specific URL, then automagically pasting the scraped string from the tab/page that activated the workbook via right-click.
Manually copy the input from website 1 to get it on your clipboard.
Navigate to website 2 & login
– As I mentioned above, you could create your own scraper template to login create a single page scraper that completes the login information to bypass having to do that each time in a second “Scrape data in the background” action in the automation below.

Adds to the menu to select from to run the automation when on a website.
