Task goal

This task allows extracting data from any email body with a NoCode snippet.

An small explanation

You receive an email when a user submits a form from your website.

All those emails usually have the same structure as the next one:

Name: Miquel
Email: [email protected]
Subject: Welcome aboard
Message: Hi Miquel!

Thank you for your signup!

This task allows to parse any email body and assign all values to the defined labels, getting an output like this:

"Name": "Miquel",
"Email": "[email protected]",
"Subject": "Welcome aboard",
"Message" "Hi Miquel! Thank you for your signup!"

After importing it

When you import the import, you get the next task in your n8n:

We recommend importing this workflow into your current task and adapting it.
You define a couple of variables in the "Set values" SET:

  • body: the email body you want to parse. You can add this as an expression from previous variables.
  • labels: the keywords you want to detect and parse. Labels are case insensitive.

We define the next values:


Name: Miquel
Email: [email protected]
Subject: Welcome aboard
Message: Hi Miquel!

Thank you for your signup!



A screenshot of the Set output is the next one

If we check the "Function item" Node, we get the next content after executing the task:


The task has the next features:

  • You can detect as many labels as you want.
  • Label detection is case insensitive.
  • You can use the snippet as an independent workflow to call it generically, adding the Function item to the workflow and passing body and labels as paremeters.


This task has limitations:

  • The parser only accepts the multiline values at the end of the email.
