Unveiling the Potential: Altering Time Formats with the Advanced Formula Editor

This document has been translated using AI. There may be some abnormalities in the expression.

I have delved into the intriguing mechanism of the advanced formula editor, available for business plan or higher. While the content may be somewhat esoteric, I implore those with an interest to peruse it.

In the advanced formula editor, one can define arithmetic operations utilizing constants for fields or within fields. For example:

By utilizing such calculations, the presentation format of time fields such as actual time and estimated time can be altered. I have conducted an examination to observe how the display format varies based on the type of view.

View With advanced formula editor, for fields or multiplication/division operations on fields With advanced formula editor, for addition/subtraction operations on fields Without using advanced formula editor, Custom fields
List view :white_circle: :white_medium_square:
Board view :white_medium_square:
Task details screen :white_circle: :white_medium_square:
Dashboard :white_medium_square: :white_circle:
Adding comments with rules :white_medium_square: :white_medium_square: :white_medium_square:

:white_circle:︎: The format varies depending on the magnitude of the value - week:day:hour:minute
△: The format is independent of the value’s magnitude - hour:minute
:white_medium_square:︎: The format is independent of the value’s magnitude - minute

Therefore, I have discovered that one can select the desired display format only on the list view, task details screen, and dashboard.
