Name: Formulas Research Status: Done (see the report)
- Our roadmap includes Support for calculated columns in tables
- Dhruvi produced a preliminary UX design last year to consider how we might add support for formulas within the Data Explorer.
- We lack a documented understanding of the ways in which our competitors are using formulas.
- We lack a documented understanding of the Postgres features (and their limitations) that we might utilize to implement formulas.
- Research competing products and produce a report which provides detail on their usage of formulas.
- Experiment with Postgres generated columns to identify potential roadblocks we might encounter if we utilize this feature to build calculated columns. Incorporate findings into report.
- Also research and report on the viability of any other promising approaches discovered during competitive research.
- This project should take 1 week.
- Start date is TBD.
