A summary on a column of type string has no effect, unless it is a label

When are you planning to add a summary on a column of type string, to count an answer from a list?

For example: how many people answer yes or no?, like a stadistics button or so, just for the "editable" columns.

Thanks in advance.

The answer is that it not yet supported, and not yet on the roadmap neither, but this can change :-)

We could add a property such as

col.xyz.type = string
col.xyz.summary = count
col.xyz.summary.stringcondition = (?i)yes

the format for the stringcondition would be
col.xyz.summary.stringcondition ::= <regexp>

Regexp would then be a regular expression as used in a java pattern

Alternative is that you create a scripted field (using the script runner plugin of jamie elchin)
Check the example which count the number of 'Yes' in a column of type list.

Quick poll question. We are currently using uservoice to collect feedback. Is Atlassian Answers a better place to discuss ?
