@Soudios, Yes ofcourse

You can send a mail with PDF from a bot & can be extracted info from the mail by a bot

This is my understanding, Please correct if i’m wrong.

Yep @Soudios,

It’s clear. There are mail activity packages for different providers like Outlook, Google, Microsoft.

UiPath also has PDF activity package.

So what else, Just go ahead and start automating :wink:

Just an approach for you,

  1. Read email from inbox
  2. Save required attachment & Read data from it
  3. Process the data as u need

Hope this will be useful

Thanks :slight_smile:

Yes, you can follow any approach.

  1. Schedule the bot at a regular frequency.
  2. Or you can make the bot run all the time (terms & conditions apply :slight_smile:)

Thanks

Great @Soudios.

You need to enable IMAP/POP settings, so that you can read mail messages from it and process attachments.

Similarly, the output of the activity will be a collection mail objects from which you can access things related to mail like subject, body, attachments etc… Explore it more below

Then after you get the attachment, just save it.

Then you can ready everthing from that saved PDF.

Hope this helps

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi @Soudios

In addition to @Nithinkrishna said how bot know when the email is sent so that process triggers

I think it is a good option to use so that bot runs only when email arrives

There is another way for this

Check this video

Hope it helps :blush:
