Given Fibery’s existing powerful configuration potential, and hopefully even greater abilities here moving forward, I’d like to suggest a rarely seen, but very useful and power feature of Ability to edit a formula field.
This is very useful if you are using a formula field to build some activity data in an entity. One Example would be “editing when an entity is closed” if you are using a button to pre-fill a field with that info. This is something I have set up for my team which is a real time saver: You simply hit a button “close entity,” and it pre-fills a formula field with that date. Without this, my user has to remember to fill in this field manually with the clunky (sorry guys, but it’s true) date picker.
However, what if you forget to hit this button and want to mark the entity closed a week after the fact? If you are using this type of formula field, there is no way to edit that date. But if we had Editable Formula Fields, perhaps with a simple ellipses option to “edit value,” you could solve this.
Without the editable formula field, you’d need another simple text field reserved for manual entry of this info, and I’m not sure how you’d come to terms with these two fields used for this need.
Of course, if there is another way to accomplish what I’m describing here, would love to hear that!
