It would be nice to have text formulas display on a form.
I use text formulas in child records to get text data from parent objects. If I cannot use that data where needed on a form, I am faced with breaking one of the fundamental rules of relational data bases - inputting redundant data in a child object field that is otherwise readily available from the connection to the parent object.
YES I AGREE... it would be most helpful to have (A) Fields with conditional rules, and (B) Text formula fields to be able to be displayed (non-editable) on FORMS. Information that cannot be displayed or printed is quite useless.
I tried added a conditional rule and it still did not allow me. :(
A workaround would be to make short text field and use conditional rules to set it to the value of the text formula.
