intellisense when updating field in formula tool

it would be great if the formula tool could expand the intellisense to the select column box. For example, I could start typing in the select column box and it would widdle down the list of fields down.let's suppose I wanted to update field 79A, I could type in 7 and it might show something like 

7

17

27

37

70

71

79A

79B.

 

So if I typed in 79 then, it would further reduce it to 

79A

79B

 

And i could select 79A.

Didn't the old Formula tool do this?  I'm certain it did.  Because if I wanted to take field "SALES" and create "SALES_X", I could just start typing, and it would fill in SALES, then I could just enter _X.  Very useful for longer field names.

This would really speed up work on wide data sets with dozens (or hundreds) of fields.

Thank you for your feedback!

 

It's great to see so much input on an idea so early and we always appreciate feedback on how we can prove our UI and the general user experience with our tools. This also gives a good amount of insight some use cases with larger data sets that might not have initially been as visible to our developers.
