Hi, I have a formula field that has long SWITCH statement and I want to modify this formula dynamically in backend. Is there a way to achieve this?

You can’t modify a Formula field through Custom Apps or the API.

Hi @MK_Kim

This is one of my 5 “most wanted” !

Fields Properties CRUD from Custom App API !

Airtable’s DEVs stopped communicating about it
so I’m trying to ring @Taylor_Savage bell ?



Hey @MK_Kim,

The apps sdk does allow you create (look for createFieldAsync) and modify (look for updateOptionsAsync) fields, which is what my eazyfields open source app does. It just doesn’t allow you to modify formula fields.

I did also create an open source formulas app, which you may build upon to achieve what you want.
