Note: A formatter function doesn’t modify the agent result, but just display the fields result into different HTML tags and styles. So, there is no need to re-run the agent to apply the changes we made in formatter as opposed to post-processing functions where, re-running of agent is requires to see the changes in result. While in formatter, as soon the agent configuration is updated the formatted result can be seen in agent
