Hello All. I have this requirement as mentioned below .

 

Supplier email is received let me say daily 100 with multiple attachments . I require Alteryx to pick these attachments and process the information in the workflow .

 

Is there any way to do it . 

 

Also , i require alteryx to send email to supplier with output information everytime it  generates the output . 

 

Any clue . Thanks.

Hi @praneshsapmm 

 

For your first question. How to read email/ files from email. Here is a link which might help you out.

And for sending an email with an attachment. Email tool has option. You directly attach the file or provide path through a field.

Hi @praneshsapmm 

 

Yes Email tool can totally do it. I have been using it for a while. As you can see all fields are customizable and can also be loaded from a fields. Which makes it dynamic and very flexible
