Treat Labels as Text in Formula


The Label attribute is obviously a variant of text objects.
Right now I can’t seem to be able to select Label columns as formula inputs.

Could we have the labels converted to or treated as text for formulas so we could do some meaningful calculation for specific labels?

Right now I have to create a redundant text column so formulas could be used.




Hello @j11, to be honest with you I’m not sure exactly why only text, number and date fields were chosen for formula fields, but I’m sure there was a good reason for our dev to limit this.

But I will definitely add this as a suggestion and check with the dev team whether and when we will be adding other attributes to formulas as well.
