Question

How can I use the String Function "FORMAT_NUMBER" on my feed? 

Answer

There are a few different ways a user can implement the "FORMAT_NUMBER" function within a feed. One thing to note is all FORMAT_NUMBER functions will round up to the nearest decimal place based on the type of query selected. 

 

FORMAT_NUMBER(:0.0){{

Example: The below rule was created to optimize titles for a jewelry feed and round the diamond carat value to the first decimal place. 

Title in the import:

Leah - 1.71 Emerald Peach Sapphire Engagement Ring

Title after the FORMAT_NUMBER(:0.0){{ string function applied:

1.7ct Emerald Peach Sapphire Engagement Ring Solitaire Platinum


How did we apply this? The below example shows how this rule was applied on the feed level using a combination of the String Functions, static values (such as ct to reference the carat), and product attribute fields based on the jewelry item such as color, style, metal type, etc. 

 

Here is a gif on how we suggest applying this on the feed level for this specific use case scenario:

See below for an image of the rule once saved. The highlighted portions are the string function FORMAT_NUMBER(:0.0){{ being used within the rule to apply to the [P]. [Carat (In numbers)] product attribute field and the }} bracket to close the function and continue to concatenate the rule as expected resulting in the end value shown above. 

 

 

FORMAT_NUMBER(:0%){{

Example: The below rule was created to update the price to a percent on the feed.

FORMAT_NUMBER(:0,0){{

Example: The below rule was created to update the price to 0,0 on the feed.
