Is it possible to create a workflow that has an input field where you can upload a PDF and then scrape the PDF ?

Hi Henning,

Great question! We currently aren’t able to have an input field as an upload yet, but we hope to soon! For now, I would recommend to keep using our Infobase to upload PDFs and ask the AI to scrape them.
