Setting a Parser Mailbox
The first thing you need to do to get started with our Email parser is set up a parsing template. To get started with that, go to http://parser.zapier.com, then click "Login." From there, you can log in using your Zapier account:
From there, click on "Create Mailbox" and you will be given a robot.zapier.com email address. Take an email you want parsed by the parser, and forward it to this address.
Setting a Parser Template
Once you do that, the email should load into the template.
From here, highlight the parts of your email that will contain the data you want separated out, and give them names. For me it will be the Name, Email, Address, etc.
Once you're done, click to Save the address and template at the bottom.
Congratulations! Now you have a Mailbox that will parse emails that are sent to it.
Now that you're registered, you can click to use this app in Zapier!
In your new zap, use Zapier Email Parser as your Trigger, and you will see "New Email" pre-selected. Click "Continue" to connect your account.
Now, click on "Connect a New Account".
You'll then be able to log in with the Email and Password you just used to register, and that will give you the screen to allow access.
After giving the account a name
Congrats! You've now connected your Email Parser account and can now use any and all of your mailboxes from parser.zapier.com in a zap.
Using it in a Zap
Begin by selecting the mailbox you'd like to use. Then click "Continue".
The test is successful! Now let's check our parsed data. Click on "view your email".
In the search box, type "output" to see what data the email parser has captured.
Click "Continue" and choose which app to use as your Action. For this example, let's use Gmail. Now it's time to insert your parsed data into the Gmail fields. Typing "output" in the search box makes it easier to find your data.
As seen above, you can type things and insert data from your parser. Let's repeat that for the email body.
When you're done filling in the fields, click "Continue" to see what will be used for testing.
Looks good! And that's how you use the Email Parser in a Zap!
