Description

  • AdditionalParameter   Optional. An additional parameter: a SharePoint column name (lookup columns, choice columns, and Boolean columns are also supported) or a date condition.

Remarks

  • To use the GetView function, you need to create a repeated section.
  • You can use an unlimited number of additional parameters in a formula.
  • Additional parameters work only as an equal condition and they are combined by and operators. For Boolean column, use 0 to filter No values, and 1 to filter Yes.
