Hey guys, I’m looking for a way to have hazel fetch some variables from a file and help me posting some information on an Airtable Database.
Here’s the thing:
I have a municipality app that makes a standard invoice via a PDF file. That’s my input.
I already have in place a hazel rule that allows me to fetch:
- Client’s name
- Expediture date
- Due date
- Description of the service
- Amount due
All those info gets parsed to the file name and the renamed file gets properly filed into a To Be Paid folder. When the payment has been made I change its status by moving the Invoice to a Paid folder. When it’s Due but has not been paid, Hazel moves it to a Due folder and prompts me to follow up.
It’s great for me only, but not so much to my partners that rely on an Airtable Database which some of us usually takes a little while to manually update.
Now I wonder if I could have the same informatiomation pushed to Airtable via it’s API so it would reflect the automatic status processing made by Hazel. Any hints of how could I push the same info automatically?
