Google Sheets integration using PDFs
Google Sheets is part of the Google Docs office suite. Integrating Google Spreadsheets with an email parsing tool will automate your business workflow. Parseur is a powerful email parser software to automatically extract text from emails, attachments, and documents such as PDFs.
Why send emails automatically to Google Sheets?
Most common use cases for Google Sheets automation include:
- Sending email leads to Google Sheets
One of the most common use cases that we encounter with our clients is lead generation. You may be receiving thousands of leads emails from different platforms in your mailbox. Manually extracting specific information from your emails is time-consuming. Automatically parsing the leads’ emails to Google sheets will save you countless hours of work.
- Copying email attachments to Google Sheets
Parseur not only extracts data from emails but from attachments as well such as CSVs, Excel, MS Word, or PDFs. You can easily extract data from tables and rows in your PDF documents, and automatically send them to Google Sheets.
- Exporting parsed data from order confirmations (e-commerce store, Shopify, Etsy, Ebay) to Google Sheets
As an online retailer, you may be receiving countless order confirmation emails from your e-commerce store. Instead of manually extracting specific information (customer details, items list, shipping address), you can use Parseur to automate this data extraction process. The parsed data can then be automatically sent to Google sheets.
Other examples where our users convert emails to Google Spreadsheets are:
- consolidate answers to a survey or web form
- track job applications candidates
- view consolidated Google Alerts reports
- track expenses from their parsed invoice data

You can have two options to send your data to the spreadsheet:
The default option: one row per document
- If you have tables in your attachment, you can use the second option.
