How do I separating an email body into separate data fields?

I am trying to import a few data fields to my CRM when I receive an email that has the following in the body:

First Name: John
Last Name:  Smith
Phone:  (555) 324-1873


However, when creating the zap, Zapier only let’s me select all of these items as one bulk piece of data, instead of separating them into separate fields. How do I go about separating them all out into separate data fields?

Hi @Anthony.Ruperto 

Good question.

What you’ve described is referred to as email parsing.


Try using Email Parser by Zapier:

Or Mailparser:


Other alternatives:

Use 1 Code step to parse the email body.

Use multiple Formatter > Text > Split steps to parse the email body.
