Extract content from messages in Gmail

Overview

Problem


Messages in Gmail often contain an extensive set of useful information, from notifications to orders and receipts. But while it’s easy enough to sort through data when it’s in a spreadsheet or database, it’s not so simple to extract and compile information embedded in email into a data set for these tools.

With Flex.io, you can quickly set up serverless functions to extract content from messages in Gmail using handy Node.js and Python text mining libraries. In addition, you can use pre-built connectors to export the extracted data into a CSV file or a Google Sheet.
