  • Smaller web app size. Faster loading times.
  • Many minor UI enhancements and fixes.

Email Parser Web App updated

April 8, 2021

We have updated the web version of Email Parser adding AWS lambda scripting support, a lot of bug fixes, and small improvements. Except for some limitations, now the Web app is on par with the latest release of Windows app.

If you were using Google Sheets or Gmail in the Web App just note the following changes:

  • You need to use IMAP to access your Gmail account. For this, you have to create an app-specific password in your Google account. More info in this guide.
  • You will also notice that all your Google Spreadsheets are no longer visible from Email Parser. This is because, with the latest changes in the way we use the Google API, Email Parser can only see the spreadsheets created by itself, not your full Google Drive. Now you need to create a blank spreadsheet from Email Parser (not from Google Spreadsheets) and then use it to export your email data as usual. After its creation, you can go to Google Spreadsheets and change its format, manually add some data, etc. Email Parser will just add new rows below.

Email Parser 5.7 for Windows

February 26, 2021
This new release comes with the following changes:
  • Support for the AWS lambda platform. This means that a new action type that runs lambda functions is now available. With this, you can run scripts not only written in C# but also any other language that the AWS Lambda platform supports (C/C++, Python, Javascript, Java etc.)
  • Many small improvements and fixes on the arrows of the left panel. Now, connections between fields are also shown and drag and drop to quickly update the item connections is now fully supported.
  • Other minor improvements and fixes in the UI of the app.
As usual, you can download this new version from here.

Email Parser 5.6 for Windows

December 10, 2020
This new version contains minor bug fixes in the app logic but many improvements in the user interface. Most of the changes are focused on the user-friendliness and the look and feel of the app. The most notable updates are:
  • Improved left panel arrows. Now they have square edges and are better arranged to understand complex flows while taking less space.

  • Parsers now have an overview that shows all the fields and the steps involved within a parser.
  • Items can now be arranged in groups easily. Previously, this feature was available but was not very widely used because it was a bit hidden in the user interface. Improved look and feel as well.

  • Quick examples. A set of examples are built in the app itself to show the new users how to use the app quickly without going through the docs.

  • The output window automatic scroll can no be disabled. This makes it easier to browse the output while processing emails at the same time.

  • And, as usual, many other small tweaks, updates, and bug fixes.
 

Are there any updates to the Web App?

Not yet, features are usually implemented first in the Windows App and then added to the Web version as well. We expect to update the web version to be on par with the Windows App along with January 2021.  

Where do I download the Windows App?

The new version can be downloaded from the Get Windows App section.  

Do I need to uninstall or save the existing settings to update?

No, just running the installer is needed.

Email Parser Web App released

May 26, 2020

The new Email Parser Web App brings the same features as the Windows app but in a web-based solution. Most of the examples, documentation and knowledge already posted on this website over the years are applicable for the web app. It is based on the same concepts and the design of the user interface is deeply based on the Windows version. Note that there are some limitations, mostly regarding scripting and the use of local files as you may expect.

Email Parser 5.4 for Windows released

The most notable change in this release is the removal of the Connect to Email Parser online option in the Windows App. Email Parser online was a running mode where the app connected to our server to set up the email parsing rules there. The newly released Web App completely replaces this. This release also comes with minor fixes and improvements. A lower memory footprint is expected when processing complex emails but, from the user perspective, this new version looks almost the same as the previous. In a nutshell, if you are using 5.3 and do not have any performance issues you do not need to update. And if you were using Email Parser online you can uninstall the app, everything has been moved to the web browser. As usual, this new release can be downloaded from the Download page.
