    Hi Sara - I'm sorry, but the "official comment" is completely missing the point of this issue. Essentially, a field with currency options cannot be used in any way other than display - it's not pos...

  • Ben Rubinstein commented,

    Reinhardt, you wrote "Right now the currency has only aesthetic value". Actually it's worse than that - if (when creating the app) you only permit one currency, it does indeed have merely aesthetic...

    Hi Sara, Thanks for responding, but it doesn't help.  I'm not trying to add a currency symbol onto a string to display; I'm trying to do a calculation based on a currency field. For example I have ...

    It's been years, and still filters can't access some of the most common field types. We can filter on more complicated things like progress, numbers and money - but we can't filter on text. We'd ...

    Required category fields shouldn't always default

    If a choice is a required field, it's important. People are human, and sometimes forget to fill in a detail. If a field is a text or number field, we can set it required, and Podio helps us; it d...

    Categories and sub-categories (or, filtered relationships)

    Sometimes we need people to make a selection from a list that has a natural heirarchy, or is too long to be easy to use unless it is broken up. How can I represent this in Podio? Say for example ...

    Access the currency of a money field (in calculation)

    A money field has a currency and a amount. The currency can be fixed when the template is defined, or the user chooses it when entering the amount. When the field is displayed in a view, it appea...
