This Product Ideas board is currently undergoing updates, but please continue to submit your ideas.
I’d like to request support for BC dates, or “negative” years. The Timeline Block is willing to display “negative” years, and I think it would be neat to be able to build a History Timeline in Airtable that could span back into Ancient, BC history. Sadly, the furthest back I can get is a “year 0”.
And even the Date Picker on the Date field is willing to scroll backwards into negative years, but then when a date is selected, it inputs it as the positive inverse year:
I’ve been fiddling with
DATETIME_PARSE() formulas and can’t seem to get anything to produce a “negative” year output.
Would love to see support for this, even if the use-cases are rather narrow :slightly_smiling_face:
Great product suggestion.
You wouldn’t happen to be homeschooling ancient history, would you?
Did you ever find a solution? I’m looking for same thing
Can’t agree more!! I really need this function, too. Hope Airtable Team supports your request.
