Feeding Your Realtor.ca Inquiries / Leads Into Your AgentLocator CRM.
This integration is a bit more complex, please request support if needed!
Step 1: Go to app.mailparser.io and create an account. You'll then want to "Create a New Inbox" (you'll see an option on the main scree or in the top left corner) - Name the mailbox so you recognize what it's for ie Realtor.ca Leads.
Step 2: Open up your new mailbox and you'll see a unique parsing email, copy that email
Step 3: Now you're going to head on over to your Everyday Email inbox ie Gmail and you'll need to create a forwarding address & Rule.
a) Click on Settings
b) Go to the Forwarding Section & Add a New Forwarding Address & Place the Unique Parsing Email into that Forwarding address section
c) After adding in the forwarding address, a confirmation email with a code will be sent... Go into your inbox, copy that code then go back to settings --> Forwarding and place the code in
d) You'll now need to Create a Filter (image a) to forward only the emails from firstname.lastname@example.org (Image B) to your unique parsing email (image c)
GREAT! Now You've Successfully Set Up the Automatic Forwarding of Your Realtor.ca Leads to Your Unique Parsing Email
Now We Need to Create the Parsing Rules inside the mailparer.io
The First Thing you Need to do is go onto one of your listings and "book a showing" to create a realtor.ca lead / email that will get parsed into your unique parsing email in order to create the rules to pull the data.
Now This part can be tricky!
Step 1: Go to your mailparser.io Account and Open up the Inbox you just created and Click on "Parsing Rules" on the Left side of the screen:
Step 2: You're Now going to create the rules for fname, lname, email, phone, message
Here's a video walk through: https://youtu.be/5GQwZWdM7IQ
a) Click on Edit Next to fname (you can follow these initial steps for all the fields mentioned above)
b) Scroll down to the "Content before filter"... for the Start Position select "After [x] lines" and Select #4 (depending on the email, the line number may be different, essentially you want to eliminate everything above the leads first name)
C) Now scroll down to Define End Position and Change the first filter to "Text match: before" then in the 2nd box, start typing in the leads last name - This will result in a filter that just has the leads first name.
Click "OK, looks good!" Then "Validate and Save"
D) Follow the similar steps in step "C" for Last Name, Phone, Email, Message.

GREAT! Now that you've identified where you're pulling the information from, we need to identify where you're sending the information to.
