Automation of process

I was wondering if it's possible to automate the conversion process. For example, I get emails from a specific account with a pdf attachment. I can store the attachment to my hard drive, but is there a way to automate sending the PDF to adobe to convert? When you send it back, I have built logic that will take your converted Excel file and process it.


Does that make sense?

    Yes, that makes sense. We don't have this capability today, but I can think of a couple of options:

    • Provide an access point to ExportPDF in your email client. Clicking button in Outlook (for example) sends that attachment to ExportPDF and then gives you Save As dialog (or auto-saves it into folder you designate).
    • Provide an email address (e.g. where you can forward an attachment and get emailed back an Excel.
    • Maybe something else.

    Why don't you create an Idea with how you'd like this to work, and we can consider it for the future?
