Filter Tool Results - Preview

When configuring a FILTER tool, the results of your formula are uncertain until you RUN/PLAY the workflow.  Compare that experience with the configuration of a FORMULA tool where you see a "Data Preview" of the first record results.




TRUE or FALSE could readily be added to the Filter Tool and save the execution time for the workflow.  


When you get to HTML tool versions, you could check many rows of data and potentially give back counts of TRUE and FALSE results as well.


I'll put this on my x-mas list and see if Santa has me on the naughty or nice list.

I need this too. Have struggled with multiple boolean conditions in ( and/or) operators.

Great suggestion Mark. Whenever the user can see what the impact of some action is going to be to their data, the more productive they become.

Yes! Especially being able to see the record count of true/false as you update the filter tool.

Thank you for your feedback and idea!


Due to competing initiatives and projects, our product team has determined we're unable to put this idea on the near future roadmap. However they would like to keep this in mind for future tool enhancement updates. We'll do our best to update the status when our product team reevaluates this idea in the future.
