Step 1: Open PDF.co and Select “Document Parser”
To begin, let’s select the PDF.co as the App, and the Document Parser as the Action Event.
2. Configure the Document Parser
- In the Input field, enter the source PDF URL. I used the PDF.co built-in File Storage to store my source PDF. To use the built-in File Storage, check out this tutorial.
- In the Template Id field, input the Template Id that you created to extract the text. You can get your Template Id in the Document Parser Template page here.
Note: The Document Parser comes with an Online Template Editor where you can visually design your re-usable template. You can access the Online Template Editor here.
