Hi Phyllis,

Unfortunately we don't support this yet. We've got to track this already!


Awesome, looking forward to it!

Loving the new math functionality!!

Hi @andreas

I'm trying to sum 4 values of custom fields using automation, in the field "original estimate", but there's a problem when real values are entered. Example : 1+2.5 doesn't show me 3.5 ! 

Is there a way to fix this ? 

thank you
