Number Formatting

We need an easy way to format data stored in number fields - currency, percentage, etc...

Example - how does a real estate website store the price of a property listing. They could store it in a text field formated as "$999,999." The problem with this approach is that you can's sort by this field without custom Javascript because the text field will be sorted alphanumerically which means the price $5,000,000 will be displayed before $600,000. You could store the price in a number field, but there is no way to format the number as a currency (with a dollar sign and commas.) You need custom Javascript

Webflow needs to build in native number formatting. While I love Webflow, there are so many aspects of it that are half-baked.
