use text in email to create contact?

Post by Ian Watso » Sat, 06 Sep 2008 16:28:07


Is this possible?

we receive automated emails which are always in the same format in the body
of the emails are contact details. Is there a way to extract this text and
crate a contact with the information?

Any replies much appreciated

Hello,

With some development (workflow assembly, plugin) this is possible. If
the body can be treated as an XML document, it is not that hard to
write a plugin.
Out of the box, however, there is no text "extraction". However,
working with queues (and workflows for routing) can be an interesting
and simple alternative.
