This option is available on Matching Column (Step 2) of Update, Add & Export feed. This field have extra setting. If you want to add the text beginning or end of the description, you can click here to know more. 

There are a few settings for this field which are:

It will help you to easily convert the text between different letter cases. You also can clear if the description is in HTML tags. If you don't need any changes you can select it as No change. 

For example, all lower cases titles will be vintage t-shirt. If selected all upper cases will become VINTAGE T-SHIRT or titleize case will become Vintage T-Shirt. Titleize case is upper casing the first letter of each word. 

Another example, you want to clear up all the HTML tags from your title. You can select the field Clean up all HTML tags

2. Wrap each column mapped in paragraph(s) with ... 

  • <p> paragraph - show in paragraph style
  • <ul> unorder list - show in bullet point form 
  • <li> bullet point (auto wrap with <ul>) - show the description in bullet point form
  • <li> bullet point except for the first column -  show the description in bullet point form but not included the first column mapping
  • </br> line break - show it by breaking the sentence in a line style

3. Labels for additional info

Labels for additional info also been supported with any text beginning or end of the column value such as Height is {{value}}cm, Width, Depth 

You can use the label option for additional info for the description and can add the label for the second field mapping onwards. 

eg. Material: 'description2', Height: 'description3'.

4.  Find

Find multiple words or phrases, separated by a comma. Search will match any word to find any part of the word, including

For example, *man will find woman, manicure as well. The find field also supports regular expressions too. It will find the word from the feed file.

Another example, there is also a way to remove all links from the description field, the user needs to put as this *<a href=.?>,<a id=.?>,</a>*

5. Replace with

Replace with define as you can replace it with multiple words or phrases, separated by a comma. eg word1,word2. (Auto-matched with Find)

For example, To replace the word with the column name, you can use {{description}} place the column name inside the bracket {{ }}

6. Convert newline to line break

It can convert the new line to a line break. If your file contains ('\n'), it will convert it as (<br/>)

7. Set to blank

By enabling the toggle icon, it will automatically set to blank when the value in the feed file is blank as there is no value set in the description section (zero or '0' are not considered blank).

8. Only update if the current description is empty (only Shopify update feed)

By enabling the toggle icon, it will update the empty product description in the Shopify store. 

For example, when your product description is empty and you need to update those only. You can use this option to do that.  

9. Hide label when value 0

By enabling the toggle icon, it will automatically hide the label with a 0 value.

For example, mapped in the label section as height, weight, and width. If the value of weight is "0" or "0.0" by default it will show up, when enabled it won't show the entire "Weight: 0".
