Replacement Rules

The replacement rules give you the ability to manipulate your data as you like during import and export. Out of the box RO CSVI comes with multiple rules but since this is plugin based you can create as many rules as you like. The rules can also be combined making an even more flexible import and export.

Available Rules

RO CSVI comes with the following replacement rules:

  • Conditional
    Replace values based on a given condition
  • Combine
    Combine fields together into another field
  • Copy
    Copy the content of one field to another field
  • Margin
    Perform calculations on fields
  • Multi-replace
    Peform a number of operations on a field in a single step
  • Skip
    Skip fields based on a given condition

Advanced import and export

By using the replacement rules you get a lot of control over how data is imported or exported. This allows you to import a variety of different files and still get all the data you need into your site. The other way around, when creating an export, you can create any kind of file with the data you need.

Cron jobs

Cron jobs are a great feature to get tasks executed automatically and at set intervals. Examples where this can be useful is the import of product data into a webshop, order export to a shipping company, order details into an accounting package, user details from a CRM into a website. There are lots of ways to automate the work processes for your website.

Automated imports

In many cases an automated import is the only way to keep your site updated. Webshops are reliant on this because due the sheer amount of products it is impossible to keep products updated manually. Cron jobs are a real life-saver at this point. By setting up an import where the data is read directly from the supplier, nothing else is needed to get all the data into the site.

Automated exports

Once the products start selling on a site, there will be a need to get the orders send out as well. Running a manual export of the orders of the day can become very tedious and time-consuming. The export of orders can also be automated so your shipping & handling company will receive them in a timely manner and the orders will go out to customers.

Advantages of a cron job

Running imports and exports via a cron job also has the advantage you are not limited by the script limits when running the import or export via the browser. This allows for importing much larger files at a faster pace compared to running the import in the browser.

Another advantage is that you can be sure that the import or export runs because cron jobs are triggered automatically by the server.
