If you've ever spent way too much time copying info out of PDFs you receive, you'll be happy to know those days are over.

Docparser scans uploaded PDF files and extracts their information according to custom parsing rules. All you need to do is upload a sample file, and set up the location for the different elements you want to extract. These can be single pieces of info, like a name, value, phone number, or date, or entire rows of structured data for your spreadsheets and databases. This information can then be passed into any app you need, meaning you'll never have to copy/paste from PDFs again.

How Docparser Works With Zapier


  • Parsed Data Available: Triggers whenever a new Document is processed and parsed data is available.


  • Upload Document: Uploads a new document to Docparser which will immediately be parsed after reception.

  • Fetch Document from URL: Fetches a new document from a publicly accessible URL and imports it into Docparser for immediate parsing.
