Hello,In Datascience, Levenshtein and Jaro Winkler distances are used to quanitify a similarity between two strings.Here the wikipedia pageshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levenshtein_distance
Note 1 : the Levenshtein and Jaro Distances are already used in Fuzzy Matching tool, so that shouldn't be a huge work to include it in formulaNote 2 : there is a useful macro on the galley https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/LevenshteinDistance/5c54701f826fd30988f02779Note 3 : some product already have it implemented such as Apache Hive or Qlik SenseBest regards,Simon
hi @simonaubert_bd, neat idea! Our product team is constantly striving to make our products better, and the user feedback we received is critical in that mission. This idea will be reviewed and commented on by product management when the necessary criteria are met.
this would be a great addition, to apply fuzzy match attributes in a formula. Would get more utility out of the feature!
