Creating Computed Attributes

How to create Computed Attributes in Plytix for transforming outputs

Computed Attributes help you transform your attribute outputs using formulas (think spreadsheet formulas). This removes the need to keep duplicate attributes in your account when a channel requires you to format it differently. All you need to do is apply a computed attribute to transform it on output. This feature is available for Channels and Brand Portals. In this article, we will show you how to create computed attributes.

Creating Computed Attributes

  1. Navigate to the Channel or Brand Portal to which you want to add a Computed Attribute.
  2. Open the "Attributes" tab, where you manage all your attributes.
  3. Click 'Add Attributes' to open the attribute selection area.
  4. Then on the right panel you will see a button that says '+New Computed Attribute'
  5. Click on it to create a new computed attribute. Then, click on your newly created attribute to edit its attribute label. 
  6. Click 'Add attributes'
  7. Then save your changes.

Your new attribute will appear in the attribute list.

To start creating your formulas for this new attribute, hover over the attribute and click on 'Settings'.
