PDF File Data in Google Drive

I want to send a pdf document to a gdrive folder (or dropbox) to trigger a new row in a gsheet. The problem is the information that I want to flow into the new row is not found in the zap setup.  Note: I have software to add pdf metadata which does not appear during Zap setup. 


I guess my question is there a way to embed a pdf file with data that will be usable in the Zap setup?


Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi @Peter_Alizio 

Yeh, you’d need to find an app that can parse the data from the PDF once it’s been uploaded to Google Drive. Docparser is one option.
