Syntax Checker and Highlighter
We’ve just added a syntax checker and highlighter to the Formula Builder! It’s handy when you’re building formulas. Just like in the example screenshot above, the syntax checker will:
- Highlight fields, aliases, and functions, so it’s easy to tell them apart from standard text.
- Show errors at the bottom of the editor. This is helpful for troubleshooting, because you can identify and fix a problem (or a stray typo!) right away.
- Show field names when you hover over an alias. You can check that you’re working with the right field without needing to consult a separate list.
