Need "Set Column > User Profile >" without template/relationToUser

In order to write a value to the currently signed in user’s row from a different sheet, you need to:

  1. create a template column

  2. point it to User Profile >Row ID or Email

  3. create a relation column that links the two sheets by this value

    Only then can you do a “set column” action to the user profile sheet.

A better solution would be to enable the “User Profile >” reference natively within the Set Column action (just like how we can access it from filters, ITE columns, Template columns, and
Math Columns)

+1 (sorry, no votes left for now) for everything that has to do with user and session information

Absolute no-brainer. It’s a pain right now.

First thing I add to a new Table is ROWID, second is this! I just do it by default now because it’s almost always needed at one point or another.

Exactly…if we need this kind of functionality in every table, then it should just be an integrated part of glide…shouldn’t need to build it every time.
