How it works


Fully automated in 3 easy steps

 

Working with your Email Messages


1

Send Your Emails to Inbox Parser

Inbox Parser generates a unique email address for you so our server can intercept the email notifications that need parsing.

The first step in your setup process is to log in to the location (lead provider, 3rd party shopping cart, etc.) that is sending you email notifications, and replace the current email address that's being notified with the email address we provide to you.

We'll wait for the new address to receive a few emails.

Once it has, you can begin to set up your parser fields.

Parser Field Setup

Now you get to specify what information you want InboxParser to pull out of your emails.

On the screen you'll find a copy of an email that you have received.

As an example, if you wanted to capture the first name, you highlight the first name in the email to create a parser field and label it 'First Name'.

Now InboxParser will capture the first name from the location you've specified from this point forward.

Once you've set up all of your parser fields, it's time to create Actions.

Perform An Integration Action

An action is counted every time Inbox Parser takes incoming data and something is done with it (i.e. Send an Email, Send a Webhook, Add a Data Row, etc.)

You are able to create Filters on incoming messages and outgoing actions to precisely work with the messages you need.
Essentially, if an email doesn't meet certain criteria, it won't be parsed.

If it is parsed, you can create unique criteria for each individual action. For example, you might have an email filter [when 'subject line' contains 'New Inquiry'] and an action filter [when 'referral' is equal to 'Social Media'] ).

 

Working with your Webhook Messages


1

Send Your Webhooks to Inbox Parser

Inbox Parser generates a unique URL address for each webhook you'd like to send to InboxParser.

The first step in your setup process is to log in to the software platform that is sending the webhook and add your new Inbox Parser webhook address (URL) we provide to you.

If you have the ability to send an immediate test from the platform, great.

Send a webhook. We'll wait for the new address to receive a few messages.

Once it has, you can begin to set up your parser fields.


2

Parser Field Setup

Now you get to specify what information you want Inbox Parser to pull out of your webhooks.

On the screen you'll be able to view all of the key/value combinations we have seen.

From this screen you determine what keys you want to capture. As an example, if you wanted to capture the Contact Id, you would select the Contact Id from the webhook to create a parser field and label it 'Contact Id'.

Now InboxParser will capture the Contact Id from the location you've specified from this point forward.

Once you've set up all of your parser fields, it's time to create Actions.
