One of the areas I was thinking of using this is to actually select top five incomplete tasks for a project at our weekly standup meeting. I have a scoring formula and was thinking that it would be really helpful to filter out incomplete tasks (doable right now) and then sort by rating and return top five. I can always pull up a filtered/sorted board for this but having this as part of the meetings notes is quite helpful.
I also agree with @Matt_Blais in that once blocks are available, it would be great to be able to basically run a query for top five requests, top five tasks, etc.
I have a “meeting type” type where I group meetings together and was really thinking it would be good to have the formula return the previous meetings automatically. So the formula I thought would look like:
We have an organic solution for this in the backlog with a codename Feed View, stay tuned
Yep, this definitely sounds like a View. A Context View you can put right inside your meeting notes. Again, part of the Blocks initiative.
This is already too much to ask, unfortunately. Just imagine how often the Formula has to recalculate — this scenario begs for Rules
Fibery Formula functions always return a predictable kind of result. This means First() can’t sometimes return a single Entity and sometimes a collection — otherwise chaining like .First().Name won’t be possible.
We can create a separate function though. So far it seems like it will bring more harm than good but we are eager to see more scenarios.
Hey, sorry if this should be obvious, but how do you access this in Collections? I was looking for a new option in my Collections but I don’t see anything. By “Collections” I’m referring to the area in an Entity where you see related entities from a Type that are children of the said Entity.
Thank you @Matt_Blais! That is simply too technical for us to use right now. Over time I hope Fibery can develop a simple filter/sort dialog next to the “Collections” area within entities that anybody could set up as simply as in Excel, or even the existing sort/filter we have in Fibery when it comes to Table View. I assume @antoniokov you guys are open to developing this functionality in a more user-friendly way down the road in the not-too-distant future? Being able to easily control what shows in Collections, like only “done” tasks within a Project, would really be a big piece of making Fibery more accessible to mass users I think!
Building ingestable summaries/reports to send to our team and partners, either sharing the doc or by sending them in a weekly email. It’s more about formatting a readable content:
For ex. last month we did X amount of sales at Y % conversion rate. Top 5 partners are x, y, z (or a list) etc
