Create Todoist tasks from parsed email data

Todoist integration

Let’s take the case where you manage a team and different tasks have to be created in Todoist on a daily basis. You receive emails from your customers, suppliers or any other organization. In order to keep track of every task and assign those to your team members, you have to go through your emails and create tasks in Todoist manually.

What if you could automate this manual process so that you can have more time in organizing and planning your tasks?

Integrating Todoist with Parseur

Parseur is a powerful email parser tool that automates the data extraction from emails and other documents such as PDFs, CSV or MS Word. The parsed data is sent to any business application of your choice in real-time, helping you to save countless hours of manual tasks.

By integrating Todoist with Parseur, you will be able to automate the manual process of creating tasks from your emails to Todoist.

How does the integration work?

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

Step 2: Forward your email to the Parseur mailbox

You will receive an email address for the mailbox so that you can forward the email to your Parseur mailbox. The email will arrive in your mailbox within less than 10 seconds.

Step 3: Teach Parseur which data needs to be extracted to send to Todoist

Parseur is a no code tool which means that with zero coding knowledge, you can create as many templates as you want. You don’t need to create any parsing rules as well. Parseur has an built-in library of ready-made templates created for different industries such as real estate, Google alerts, food ordering and property bookings among others.

You can also create custom templates! Every time an email arrives in your mailbox, Parseur will pick up the right template automatically and extract data from it.

Once the template has been created, every other similar email that you send to your Parseur mailbox will be automatically parsed. You can also set up an auto-forwarding rule to forward emails automatically.

Step 4: Create Todoist tasks using the parsed email data

The parsed data can be exported to Todoist using Zapier. Zapier is a cloud automation tool that connects applications together to automate repetitive tasks.
