ThinkAutomation is an advanced email & message parser. It can scan any sort of message and look for & extract (parse) data which it then assigns to a 'field' name.
The parsing process can be as simple as 'Look For 'First Name' then '=' and extract until the end of the line'. Or it can be more complex, making use of regular expressions and repeating blocks.
Once a field is extracted ThinkAutomation can remove leading & trailing spaces, change the case and perform other transformation actions. You can also combine multiple fields into one (eg: First Name + Last Name) and perform validation actions on the field values.
Any number of fields can be parsed & extracted from a single message. These fields can then be used on subsequent actions within an Automation.
ThinkAutomation will automatically convert HTML only emails to plain text. It can also parse & extract text from PDF, Word and other documents and image attachments.
Email To Database
Extracted fields can be mapped to database table and column names. ThinkAutomation will then automatically create the required SQL commands to update your database.
You can also create custom database update actions if you need finer control.
ThinkAutomation can connect to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, Firebird, MS Access, MS Excel and MongoDB databases out of the box, plus any ODBC data source.
Once configured, ThinkAutomation can process all your incoming email, parse & extract the data you need and update your company databases, silently and in the background.
ThinkAutomation can also execute other actions that make use of extracted fields. ThinkAutomation can send outgoing emails (an 'Auto Response') using fields parsed and extracted from the incoming. It can create documents that can be attached to outgoing emails.
