Hi community,

 

I’m a brand new zapier user and have been trying really hard to grab data from an incoming email so I can easily choose which item i want to map. I’m using formatter to grab the data

It’s giving me an output of this

 

The emailing I’m pulling the info from is very basic like this

 

Can anyone help with how I can just pull the data after the = sign as an item so I can map to my Follow Up Boss?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @robo 

Good question.

You’ll need to do email parsing.

Is there a free parser option? I saw email parser by Zapier. What action would i do in that case?

I didn’t recommend the free Email Parser by Zapier as it’s not robust or reliable.

If you wanted to try, here are the help docs: https://help.zapier.com/hc/en-us/articles/8496292952973

Thanks Troy! I tried logging into parser and after authorizing my zapier account. it brought me to a 404 page. No way to add a new mailbox to your email parser by zapier.

 

Is it down right now?
