List of regular expressions and found items
Regular expression name
The name of the regular expression.
What was found using the expression.
Often there can be several results for one regular expression. The serial number of the found element is displayed here (numbering from zero!).
It is not recommended to bind to the match number in your projects. Because today the letter has one structure and the required link is the second, tomorrow the text of the letter will change and the required link will be the 7th.
Try to select the regular expression in such a way that as a result of its working, only one match remains.
Save to variable
In this column, you must select (or create a new) variable where the result of the regular work will be saved.
Copy variable macro to clipboard
Using the buttons highlighted in red in the screenshot, you can copy the variable macro.
You can save the result of several regular expressions at once! For example, the letter contains an activation code, website address, phone number, first and last name - you can get all this in one action! It is enough to compose a regular expression for each element and add variables to which the result of the work will be saved.
Regular Expression Editing
If none of the preset regulars suits you, then you can create your own.
Building from scratch
After clicking on the button with the + (plus) symbol, the Regular Expression Tester window will open, the text of the letter will already be inserted into the text field. All that remains is to create an expression and name it (so that you can easily distinguish it from others), then click OK. After that, your regular expression will appear in the general list.
Pressing the button with the - (minus) symbol will delete the expression currently selected in the general list.
Only user-created expressions can be deleted.
With this action you can edit the highlighted expression. If a preset expression has been selected for editing, then after clicking the OK button in the Expression Builder, a new regex will be added to the general list. If a custom expression was selected for editing, then after clicking OK in the Expression Tester, the changes will be written to the same highlighted regex.
After completing all the steps to find the necessary information, click Finish.
Zennoposter will suggest adding the Recieve e-mails action to the project for future use.
In situations where there are two identical letters in the mail, the action will process the newest one.
