Text to Value

SOLVE

Hi,

 

Using Ops Hub to transform some incoming string data (in a text field) like:

 

"25% increase"

"-10% decrease"

 

I can easily use the replace function to strip the " % increase" and " % decrease" text to create data "25" and "10"

 

But then I want to copy that output into a number field, and I can't see a function in Ops Hub to do a simple text to number transformation - e.g. value() or parseInt()... etc

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Or with even less code:

exports.main = async (event, callback) => {
  callback({
    outputFields: {
      newNumberValue: Number(event.inputFields['formula_result_output'])
    }
  });
}

@PBaxter You could achieve this with a coded action, simply use the value you got from your format data action in your coded action and try the following:

exports.main = async (event, callback) => {
  const valueToConvert = event.inputFields['formula_result_output'];
  const newNumberValue = Number(valueToConvert);
  callback({
    outputFields: {
      newNumberValue: newNumberValue
    }
  });
}

You guys on here are so awesome. I'd wondered if a bit of code could address this, but it would have taken me hours to work out how to do those input/output pieces - thanks so much for the screenshots!

 

I have my solution working now after a couple of hours doing and testing the workflows.  

 

Thanks again.

@PBaxter  HubSpot will prevent you from copying fields of different types over to one another. 

Alternatively, you could change your initial string data to be in positive or negative value formats - and change the text field to a number instead. you could assume that positive values mean increases and negative values mean decreases. That would then allow you to copy the value to a number field.
