How does DataParser work?

DataParser is connector software designed to collect data directly from its source to preserve chain of custody and maintain metadata for legally defensible compliance. The data is then formatted and delivered to a specified destination.

Do I need a server for this service?

No. Let us handle everything for you with DataParser Cloud.  Our dedicated DataParser Cloud Support team will monitor your service to ensure it is always uninterrupted processing and so that any issues that do occur are resolved immediately.

Can I run DataParser on demand instead of a schedule?

Yes. With the on-premise version of DataParser you control how and when it is run.  If you need to send data to your legal team for particular users or a specific date, simply create a configuration for your use case and pull the data.

How do we get Support for our on-premise version of DataParser?

You can open a ticket with our Support team by emailing or visiting the technical support page here.

Can I collect files that I’ve shared in Slack with DataParser?

Yes. DataParser can be configured to collect files from Slack’s API. You can allow your users to share files on Slack and use DataParser to collect them and stay in compliance.

Sample Output

All output is sent into your archive or supervision platform as a threaded EML file. This helps to keep conversations together for easy and logical viewing. A service indicator can be appended or prepended to the subject line to allow for simple searching. Message edits and deletes are both captured. Shared files and images are referenced in the conversation and attached to the EML output. Additional samples are available upon request.
