Edit conditional formula for field - List form

Contributor

Was setting up a field to only show when another field's metadata value = "X".

 

Used the proper expression:

 

 

=if([$MetadataField] == 'X', 'false', 'true')

 

 

Well didnt work because apparently Managed Metadata Fields are NOT SUPPORTED. Surprise. Gotchaaaa. Why? Becuase they were just promulgated last week so the tech isn't complete?

 

Tried a workaround because that's all you end up doing with msft apps when trying to use as expected. 

Created a flow to update a simple text field to the label value of the metadatafield when created/edited.

Perfect. Works..................................................................................................after several minutes. By the time the flow updates the text field the record is done, complete and you're off to something else.

 

My point. Trying to utilize a user-friendly function takes 100X longer than just leaving the one field visible and thereby rendering moot the fancy user-friendly interactivity.

 

Now I have to simply have to unhide the field and continue to pay a subscription for fancy user functions THAT NEVER WORK BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT SUPPORTED FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN CHOOSING A TERM OR ADDING AND NEW ONE. THAT'S IT!!!!

 

WHYYYYYY are we stupid enough to use managed metadata???? It's so unsupported for many, what one would reasonably expect to be simple, standard everyday mundane UI functionality. WE'RE GOING INTO 2022 AND THIS HAS BEEN AROUND FOR HALF A DECADE AND STILL UNSUPPORTED IN MANY FUNCTIONALITIES AND INTEGRATIONS???????

 

100% FAIL.
