Evaluate Each Record in Reports with Row-Level Formulas.
You may have created the formula field on the object to get data in the report. But, now from Summer ‘19, we have row-level formulas in Salesforce.
Row-level formulas enable us to create custom formulas to display in the report within the Salesforce report builder. That means we can quickly use the various formula like – Days to close, No of days since record created, etc. in our opportunity/object report without creating new fields on the object. This is a very productive win for admins, they can easily play with the data right within the report builder and display what we need without any extra configuration.
This is a beta feature, so there is some limitation mentioned in the summer ’19 release note.
To use “Row-Level Formulas” you need to enable it in Setup under report and dashboard settings.
Go To | Report Tab| Open report | Click on the icon shown in the screenshot | Select Add Row-Level Formula (Beta)
Enter Column Name | Description | Choose Formula Output Type | Choose Decimal Point | Add formula | and click on Apply.
CLOSE_DATE - DATEVALUE(CREATED_DATE)
Save and Run the report.
Now you can see the formula column in your report. Isn’t this super easy? 🙂 You can add different formula column in your report according to your business need.
