Create a global variable for the logged in user

The email of a logged in user is available for Forms. Could you also make it available while creating a filter. Something like being able to type {{user.email}} in the “Enter value” box of the Filter dialog would solve a lot of peoples requests and be a great additional feature.

Maybe other globals like, Date (not date and time as that changes every millisecond), or Geolocation. I can think of use cases for the Date are pretty straight forward but for Geolocation the only thing I can think would require a specialized “Near” function with an additional input for distance. And then you have the miles vs. kilometers thing. But that would be handy for filtering on things near your current location.
