Workflow highlight: Extract value from newsletters ⚙️

Your favorite newsletters are packed to the brim with valuable information, but with so many of these it’s difficult to keep up and then more importantly figure out what to do.

Bash makes it easier to organize newsletter insights or use them for your day to day workflows. Some examples:

  • Get summarized insights: Quickly turn the newsletter content into a brief summary; understand information faster or share with others.
  • Create an action plan: Some newsletters give in-depth how-to’s. Bash helps you turn guides in newsletters into custom action plans. Quickly Focus on implementing learnings.
  • Write social media posts: Create LinkedIn or X posts based on the newsletter

Turn any newsletter post into something new in seconds, here’s how you can do the same.

Step 1: Select the newsletter you want to work with

Newsletters are automatically added to the feed once they’re out. This makes it easier to stay up to date with the latest releases and share interesting information before anyone else.

Step 2: Choose from 80+ templates to repurpose the newsletter

Turn newsletters into a LinkedIn post, X/Twitter posts, summaries, action plans and so much more with the template gallery.

Is your use-case not in the gallery? Select “custom” and tell Bash what you want to write.

Step 3: Fine tune with the AI editor and add to a shareable topic

Once generated you can keep adding AI content and fine tune content with the in-app editor.

Turn the draft into a topic when you’re done to share your document with anyone.
