Context("table")

It would be cool to be able to know “what” data set someone is interacting with. Tables/Slices.

Should be able to kinda figure that out based on what “View” they are in.

Of course I can…
This would be easier/fool proof.

@Grant_Stead We’ve got this our our todo list.

Lol, fair enough. As a workaround, append the slice/table name to the beginning of the view name followed with an underscore. Then check INDEX(SPLIT(CONTEXT("View"), "_"), 1).
:slight_smile:

(or some other delimiter if underscores are used in your table/slice names)

Yep, already rocking naming conventions and doing something similar.
Feature requests are intended to replace workarounds…

I just realized CONTEXT("Table") is working now! Thanks @tony!

Any chance you are working on CONTEXT("Slice") next? I tried but “slice” returns blank (but does not evaluate as an error, either).
