Help with ideas for automating the refresh from emailed data exports

Hello All,

 

I am looking for ideas on how I might be able to automate the refresh of a report based on the contents of attachments emailed to me on a daily basis. I am trying to not be required to actively manage saving the report in the appropriate folders.

 

I receive a CSV data export daily from one of our systems and unfortunately this is the only way I can get this information.

 

I know that I can connect to an exchange account go into the mail and load the reports that way but from my understanding of the documentation this will not work once it is uploaded to the service. It only works with desktop.

 

Does anyone know of a way to perhaps automatically save email attachments to onedrive for business? I am open to ideas!

 

Thanks,

I know there are tools out there that save attachments to a folder, one is called "Email Manager" for example. You could sync your OneDrive and then use this tool (or similar) to save the attachment to a sync'd OneDrive folder.
