Save expressions /formulars in a central location in the library

In the section where you can insert calculated columns you can re-use previously used expressions. This is a handy feature. However, it shows all recent expressions. There is no option to include only the ones you want to be remembered. Hence Spotfire newbies often do not know which expression has worked for them the intended way. Ideally you are able to save a set of custom expressions in a central location in the library so all business users are making use of the companywide definition of a calculation.

    The ability to store expressions in addition to other file types in the library is a critical feature. In my case, I need to store data files that are not in SBDF format to the library but I cannot. I suggest adding an API to register data files (with extensions) as 'savable' in the library.

Allow Expression Functions to be registered similar to Data functions

Merged
At present, expression functions can only be used in the analysis .dxp they are created in. Would it be possible to allow them to be registered in the same way data functions can be, allowing them to be imported into different analysis .dxp's?

Have a way to name and save expressions in the expression editor

Merged
A really handy feature to have would be a way to name and save expressions in the expression editor. The “Recent Expressions” drop down is nice, but useful expressions quickly scroll off the bottom edge. Being able to maintain an expression librar...
