There are occasions, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, that Calculation fields do not update on a change of related fields or creation of a record in total.
Sometimes this is as simple as a title field that combines two or more basic fields from the present app. Sometimes it can be something with relationships and the calculations hang up and then give up after so much time.
The current solution is to go into the app and add some spaces to the Calculation in question. This forces the system to recalculate the present record as well as all others.
This method is wasteful from a system resource point of view when it is often a single record that needs to recalculate and not every record in the app.
Might we get some form of recalculating of a single record only ability and hence spare having to have the system update many records for the benefit of one?
This function could be triggered from the Action drop-down in the form of Update all Calculation on this record or via the Calculation Option for a given Calculation field in the Modify Template.
