Reopening this suggestion to collect additional feedback.Richard Armstrong commented
AF Analytics has been a great step forward but personally I'd like to see the ability to have functions developed and added so they were available to all AF users.
An addition to the AF Library for function templates was my thought.
I've talked to customers that have needed to write external AF SDK Programs to solve problems that have not been overly complex. (eg requiring loops, arrays)
If we had a function editor/builder that allowed for these to be done in AF they would be context aware and able to be recalculated within the AF environment. Ideally this would move away from the PE syntax required in AF Analytics and be closer to C, C# or Python.
This is something that has been prioritized as a potential new connector. Will update this post as things progress.
