extract text from emails with power automate integration

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.

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.
