for a long time I’ve been trying to use n8n solution to automate a very simple workflow which would:
- fetch email from GMail
- check if the email is from specific email address and contains a single PDF attachment
- if it does, it would extract PDF and the year value (current year is ok, but since PDF file name contains YEAR value, it would be greate to fetch that value from the PDF filename) and upload it to the specific folder on Dropbox (/example folder/$YEAR$ - invoices)
So far, I am stuck on ReadPDF node.
I have no idea how to configure that node in order to extract PDF file from input data and use that (binary data) as an input binary for Dropbox node
This is what I tried (would be logical to me)
Can someone please push me into the right direction?
Thank you very much for your help in advance!
I tried the same thing using https://www.integromat.com/ service (free for the test) and I was able to do it in half an hour. Don’t get me wrong. I really like n8n and would like to use it on my own, but even such a simple workflow something I can’t figure out in it. Not to mention something more difficult
