Evaluation field in Order Export Import Plugin for WooCommerce

Evaluation field is used to fix/update the required value for a particular mapping field of orders.  This field is of great help when you need to fix/update any mapping field for bulk orders. You can modify any numerical field by using calculation modes like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. With this, you can also append or prepend the required text or you can fix the mapping field to a constant value.

Now, let’s understand adding Evaluation fields during the Order Import through example.

      • d/m/yy H:i

      Note: You must maintain the same date format of CSV and Evaluation field.
      For Example : Suppose, you want to convert Order Date of d/m/yy H:i format. Under Evaluation field, write @ d/m/yy H:i  in Order Date row as shown below:
