I want to send a message to an emal, and the robot will extract to information from a pdf file into the email
Sorry @Soudios, Could you please elaborate making it little more clear.
is it possible to send a pdf to an email and the robot wil extract the information in the pdf automaticaly and put it in a folder (without human intervention)
@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.
No necessary send from a bot.
what i want is when i send a pdf to a specific email, the bot will extract the information from the pdf
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
Just an approach for you,
- Read email from inbox
- Save required attachment & Read data from it
- Process the data as u need
Hope this will be useful
Ok but how can i let the robot works without me ? (waiting for a mail with pdf file)
Yes, you can follow any approach.
- Schedule the bot at a regular frequency.
- Or you can make the bot run all the time (terms & conditions apply )
Do you have a video that explain that plz ?
Did i need to use Get imap mail ?
Thank you @Nithinkrishna
What is your mail provider please?
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
Can you send me a sample plz ?
But I can make the same approach through gmail and share you at the earliest.
Yes thank you
Hey @Soudios, Apologies for the delay.
Here is the sample.

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
Then why wait, Just start automating
It doesnt work with the email i want @Nithinkrishna
