How to create Computed Attributes in Plytix for transforming outputs on Channels, Brand Portals, and Product Sheets.
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, Brand Portals, and Product Sheets. In this article, we will show you how and where to create them.
