I have a few different bases that have tables with number formatted columns. When this happens, the summary at the bottom of the column always defaults to “sum” and will not go away permanently no matter what I do. I love having this feature here, it helps more often than it doesn’t, but when it doesn’t help it becomes a bit of a headache.
For instance, I have a column that is used to rank the data in the table, starting at 1 for the best and down to 1233 for the worst. This column insists on adding all those values in the summary at the bottom and this isn’t helpful to me at all; I’ve set it to “none” but as soon as I move to another table or leave the base and come back, it’s back to “sum” again and showing a huge added number for no reason.
I’d love to see something that retains the setting you place on these summaries, especially if changing it per view, or wanting to set it a specific way before sharing it out. I don’t want to have an auto-forced “sum” value always present just because numbers are present in the column.
