If you’ve ever found yourself needing to schedule a particular coupon code parameter in a link, or a 20% off sale that starts on particular day of the week at a particular time, Feedonomics now has the ability to schedule transformers!
Concrete Use Case
Lets say you want to add a coupon code parameter to all links, but you only want it to be added at 12am on Jan 29 2015 and ends at midnight Jan 29 2015 (-07 indicates timezone PDT, it’s relative to GMT).
By setting up the following transformer, you can schedule it easily.
current_time() after ‘2015-01-29T00:00-07:00’
AND current_time() before ‘2015-01-29T23:59-07:00’
then: [link] = [link] ‘&coupon_code=abc’
