A short question.

Could I use a virtual column as filter in the security filters of a table?

I’m afraid you can’t use because the filtering is happening on server side. Virtual columns are calculated on your device.

Minor correction — virtual columns are computed on our backend/server, not on the device. However, the sequence is:

a) data is fetched from the cloud storage (eg: Google Sheets) to our server/backend

b) virtual columns are computed

c) data is sent to the device

Security filters are applied at stage (a).
