Hey there, automation enthusiasts! 🤖 Today, we’re diving into the fascinating world of text aggregation using the Text Aggregation Module in Make.com. If you’re looking to streamline your business processes, this guide is your golden ticket! 🎟️

Let’s get started! 🚀

Understanding the Basics

First, let’s talk about the basic trigger. In this example, our trigger returns three bundles of data. These bundles are essentially key-value pairs:

  • 1 equals 1
  • 2 equals 2
  • 3 equals 3

So, we have keys and values that are identical for simplicity. Now, the goal is to aggregate these bundles into one cohesive text string using the Text Aggregation Module.

The Magic of Text Aggregation

To successfully aggregate these bundles, we need to use a text aggregator. Let’s change our keys to something more meaningful, like name. Here’s why: unique keys won’t aggregate correctly because there’s no commonality to join them together. By renaming them to name, we now have a common key to aggregate.

When we run the aggregation, we should see a combined text string of 1, 2, 3.

Separation Options

The Text Aggregation Module offers various separation options:

  • New Row: Each value appears on a new line.
  • Tab: Values are separated by tabs (not usually useful here).
  • Comma: Creates a comma-separated list (useful for arrays).

For example, if we choose commas, our aggregated text would be 1, 2, 3. This could be particularly useful if you need to pass this string into an array later on.

Grouping Data

But wait, there’s more! 🎉 We can also group data within the Text Aggregation Module. Let’s add a new layer of complexity by introducing a type variable. Here’s how:

  • First record: type is 1
  • Second record: type is 1
  • Third record: type is 2

When we group by the type variable, we should see two bundles of data being aggregated:

  • Records with type 1: Aggregates 1, 2
  • Records with type 2: Aggregates 3

Voilà! You’ve now grouped and aggregated your data based on a common variable. 🌟
