Using @today and @now in Views without rebuilding the view

now, if these functions are used in columns or selections, the view is rebuilt each time it is opened. This can take a long time for many documents in the view. There are currently a few workarounds, but official support for these features would be very helpful.

    Changing status to unlikely because it wont be a good idea to do it exactly as proposed. However, working on a feature that would improve handling of time/date based views

    I think this could be solved by having @Today at a higher scope. Right now the view is considering what is in the document. Having a view selection reference a date field in a document is not a problem. So instead of having the view reference @Today on the fly just have it reference it elsewhere as if it were a set field on the document.

    categorised view by date, then show single category of view  will allow a view of today's data

    At least for @Today. For @Now this would not be such a good idea.

    but but, the VIEW IS outdated when you use such a function.

    What is needed would be a limit or a minumum time before rebuild, as in Max once an X hour or so
