I receive messages from outsourcing phone answering services. They take a message and send me an email. I use a gmail filter to trigger a to-do zap and want to extract email text to populate contents of the to-do:

 

The email looks like this:

 

Hey,

Looks like you’re in business! I’ve just taken a call and message for you. Check out the details below.

First name: "Ronald"

Last name: "McDonald"

Company name: ""

No phone number provided: false

Phone number: "+441234567890"

No email address provided: true

Message: "Caller would like to speak regarding breakfast."

 

 

I want to populate the title using Call back: Firstname Secondname - NUMBER

 

Is it possible to extract this information using the text tools in Z, and if so, how do i go about this?

 

Thanks in advance.
