Create a Knack Database record from Parseur

SharePoint integration

Build your own database today with Knack!

Let’s take the case where you want to create a database record in Knack CRM from leads emails. Normally, you would have to go through your emails, extract the specific information that you need manually, and then insert them in the Knack database.

This is a time-consuming and manual task unless you can automate this whole process in one go.

How can you do that?

By integrating Knack Database with a powerful email parsing tool like Parseur!

Parseur is a powerful email parser software that automates data extraction from emails and documents such as PDFs or MS Word. The parsed email data can be downloaded or sent to any business applications of your choice in real-time.

What you will need? - A Parseur account - A Zapier account - Knack Database account

How to get started with Parseur?

Step 1: Sign up for your free plan and create your Parseur mailbox

Select custom emails (default)

Once your mailbox is created, you will receive an email address where you can forward your emails.

Step 2: Forward your emails to the Parseur mailbox

It doesn’t matter in which format or layout your emails are; just forward them to your Parseur mailbox.

The email will arrive in less than 10 seconds!

You can also set up an auto-forwarding rule from your personal mailbox to your Parseur mailbox.

Step 3: Teach Parseur which data to extract

You do not need to create any parsing rules for the data extraction process, unlike other email parsers. Parseur is Point & Click! The machine learning algorithm behind Parseur needs you to create templates to learn the shape of your data. The integrated template editor will enable you to create a template easily and quickly. You just need to highlight the text elements that you want to extract and create data fields for them.

You can create as many templates as you need, depending on the different layouts of your emails.

All the following emails that you send to your Parseur mailbox will be automatically processed.
