Typically a CRM system would capture data for a range of system users. Even though these users may be capturing the same type of data they may be entering it differently to each other. For example the same address can be entered in many different ways. CRM Codex’s Formatter allows text fields to be formatted in order to keep to a defined format. The formatter will work on an attribute-by-attribute basis, which can be specified by the CRM system customiser.
Currently the formatter can perform the following formats.
- All text is converted to upper case.
- All text is converted to lower case.
- The first letter of the first word is converted to upper case.
- The first letter of every word is converted to upper case.
The source code for the formatter is also included free as part of the download. This is so that other programmers may extend the functionality of the formatter to suit.
