Extract text from an email and send it to Power Automate
We are happy to announce that Parseur is integrated with Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow), one of the best workflow automation tools! This integration enables you to connect to hundreds of applications and services.
As an email parsing tool, Parseur enables you to extract specific data and export it to any application of your choice.

Power Automate is packed with features to handle the most complex workflows:
- Connected to most Microsoft applications: Office 365, SharePoint, Outlook, Excel, SQL Server, Azure services, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics NAV, and Salesforce
- Connected to hundreds more third-party applications and services
- Multi-step workflows
- Approval workflows (workflow gets on hold until somebody reviews and approves the request)
- Conditional workflows based on business data or logic
- Data transformations (compose, join, select, filter, etc.)
Benefits of an email parser integration with Power Automate
As an official connector of Power Automate, Parseur enables you to send extracted data from emails and attachments to any Microsoft products.
Some of the popular scenarios in which our customers send data to Power Automate:
- Create an item in a SharePoint List from data received by email
- Add information to Dynamics CRM from lead mails
- Send emails from an Outlook mailbox to Parseur for text extraction
- Trigger complex workflows based on data received by email
Say goodbye to manually copy and pasting text from emails to Microsoft applications!
With Power Automate integration, you can be sure to save countless hours of manual tasks while improving the automation processes within your business.
We also use Microsoft Azure; the cloud computing service of Microsoft to host some of our operations.
Step 1: Setup your Parseur mailbox and templates
Before you can use this integration, sign up for a Power Automate account, and create your account on Parseur. Unlike other email parsers, Parseur is a visual template-based tool which means that no parsing rules need to be created for data extraction. With zero coding knowledge, you can use Parseur and its in-built library of automated templates specialized for various industries such as Mortgage Leads, Real Estate, or Job Search, among others.
Parseur is Point & Click!
We’ll take the example where you want to extract data from your emails in Microsoft Outlook and send those parsed data to Power Automate. Follow our guide on how to teach Parseur on which specific data need to be extracted from your Outlook emails.
Step 2: Send data extracted by Parseur to Power Automate
Once your template has been created based on the data extraction process, you can export the parsed email data to Power Automate. Click on “export” and “MS Flow”
If you do not have a configured flow yet, Parseur will prompt you to create a flow. You will be redirected to your Power Automate account.
Since this is your first flow, click on “My flows” > New > Automated - from blank
Give the Flow a name and choose the trigger by typing “Parseur” in the search box
You will need to link to your Parseur account if this is your first flow. You can find the API key in your Parseur account.
Once your Parseur account is connected, you can then choose your Parseur mailbox; the one where you will export parsed data to Power Automate.
Step 3: Send parsed data to any application integrated with Power Automate
From there, you will be able to connect with thousands of applications and send over the extracted data via automated flows.
