Email Parser

Extract data from emails and automate your workflow

Capture text from incoming emails and write to text file


This example shows a very basic configuration of Email Parser. It takes all the incoming emails from the email account and captures two text values using the “starts with… continues until” text capture method to capture the fields “invoice_number” and “amount”. The captured text is written to a plain text file.
