Exporting parsed data to IFTTT

ifttt integration

With IFTTT, you can connect your smart home devices and automate your manual daily tasks! From Amazon Alexa to Google Assistant, you can easily end up with a smart home that is integrated with the IFTTT app.

IFTTT integration with Parseur

Parseur is a powerful mail parser that automates data extraction from emails and other documents such as PDFs or Excels. The parsed email data can then be downloaded or exported to any application of your choice.

Parseur integrates with IFTTT via Webhook just like with Integromat.

For this article, we will send extracted data to Twitter using IFTTT and Webhook. We will show how to publish a message on your Twitter account automatically. We will create a rule using Webhooks which will connect to IFTTT and thus allowing you to send automatic tweets.

What are Webhooks?

Webhook are used to exchange data between applications and servers using external APIs. Parseur has an integrated Webhook system that enables you to send parsed data to a server that accepts JSON data via HTTP POST.

How to get started with the IFTTT integration

Step 1: Create your free Parseur mailbox

Create my Parseur account
Having a powerful email parsing tool can help you automate your business processes, saving you countless hours of work.

Parseur has a built-in library of templates for specific industries such as real estate, food ordering, or e-commerce among others. You can also create custom templates, depending on which industry you are in.

Since we are going to send a custom email to the Parseur mailbox, we will select the first option.

Select the first option “custom emails (default)”

Step 2: Forward your email to the Parseur mailbox

The email will arrive within less than 10 seconds! We recommend that you set up an auto-forwarding rule from your personal mailbox to your Parseur mailbox so that to automate this process as well.

Step 3: Create your template to extract data you want to send to IFTTT

Parseur is a visual Point & Click template tool where you just have to highlight the data that needs to be extracted and, create data fields for them.

Every other similar email you send to your Parseur mailbox will be automatically processed.

Highlight and create data fields

We are naming the data fields as "Value1", "Value2" and "Value3" as when triggering the IFTTT applet, the Webhook can only take up to three value parameters.

Step 4: Sign in to your IFTTT account

To communicate with IFTTT, you will need to create a Webhook in your IFTTT account and copy the Webhook key in your Parseur mailbox. This is called applet creation. Applets are tools within IFTTT that act as a bridge between two actions.

The first event is the “IF” part and the second one is the “Then That” part.

For the “IF” part, we will be creating a Webhook as shown below and name the event:

Now, for the “Then That” part, we will choose Twitter:

choose Twitter as the trigger

Look for the Twitter app

Select Twitter as the app

sign in to your Twitter account

Connect your Twitter account

If you haven’t connected with Twitter before, you will be asked to authorize IFTTT to access your Twitter account. Once done, you will now be able to customize your tweet text and click on “Create action”.

How to obtain the Webhook URL in IFTTT?

You will need to insert the Webhook URL in your Parseur mailbox so that it creates a connection with Parseur as well. It’s a preauthorized link generated by IFTTT that you will find under “My services” > “Webhooks” > “Documentation”.

Copy the URL and go to your Parseur mailbox. Click on “export” and paste the Webhook key.

To test if the workflow has been automated with this conditional trigger system, you can either re-process an existing document or send a new email to your Parseur mailbox.
