Add a custom delimiter

  • Updated


Delimiters are characters or symbols used to indicate the end of a field, or to split up the values in a column.

Although MindBridge automatically detects common delimiters, it is only able to detect single-character delimiters, such as:

  • Comma ( , )
  • Slash ( / )
  • Pipe ( | )
  • Semi-colon ( ; )

If your firm uses a unique delimiter (single- or multi-character), you can have MindBridge detect it by adding it as the new default delimiter.

Learn how MindBridge uses delimiters, and how to leverage a custom delimiter in your engagement.

Add a custom delimiter

Add a unique delimiter so MindBridge can detect it during the analysis of your data.

Add to new library

An App Admin can add a custom default delimiter when creating a new library.

Enter the desired custom delimiter to the Default delimiter field.

Add to existing library

An App Admin can override the default delimiter in an existing library on the Library details page.

  1. On the Library details tab, enter your desired custom delimiter in the Default delimiter field.
  2. Save your changes.

Add when importing data

When you import a file, the first step in the import process is Data Validation — this is where MindBridge detects the delimiter used in the file. You or your team can override the default delimiter during Data Validation, but this change will only affect the given file being imported.

Note: If a custom delimiter has not been set, MindBridge will default to displaying the detected delimiter based on the file being imported.

To update the default delimiter:

  1. Find the Delimiter field and select Edit.
  2. Enter your desired custom delimiter.
  3. Save your changes.
Note: If you add a new custom delimiter, MindBridge will automatically re-validate the file being imported upon saving.
