Whenever you receive an email with an excel attachment, the Email Attachment Parser can read the excel file and perform an action if the excel file contains specific data.
Lets say you get an email each morning that has an excel file attached. Lets say the email and excel file looks like this:
|Subject:||Daily Shipment List|
We've attached our daily shipments in the excel file. Please note these are first come first server. If you are interested in handling a shipment, please use the contact email for that specific shipment.
- Third Party Business
In your email account, we will setup a special rule that will forward these shipment emails to a custom DashboardQ email address.
We will also setup a page that allows you to enter filters. The filter page will be real simple and look something like this:
Whenever an email comes in that matches your filters (empty filters will be ignored), it will immediately send out emails for the matches.
So if the initial example email came in with the above filters set, the following emails would be sent out:
We can take the following loads:
489763 | Houston, TX | Chicago, IL
489768 | Kansas City, KS | Dallas, TX
We can take the following load:
489764 | Nashville, TN | Denver, CO
As you can see, emails will only go out if the filters match. Also, if one contact has multiple matches, the system will only send one email to that contact.
This is just one example of the many ways that the Email Attachment Parser can work. Both the actions and the filters can be completely customized to handle your specific situation.
