Could someone please explain to me what the purpose of the T() function is?
I’ve tried using it on a variety of different fields, and it always returns the field value if the referenced field was a text field, and it always returns nothing if the referenced field was a number field.
But — we already knew in advance that one field was a text field, and one field was a number field. So why do we need the T() function? It seems redundant and unnecessary.
Perhaps the one cool thing it does is that it converts Date fields into this format:
Which I think might be useful for sending dates to Google Calendar?
