Formula: PRIORVALUE - allow usage in Custom Formula Field

Not Categorized

I am trying to create a text field where it will automatically update
it's value based upon the "highest escalation level a case ever
reached".

To solve the above, I attempted to create a TEXT Formula based Field,
but I then find out that PRIORVALUE can only be used in Validation Rules.

IF(ISPICKVAL(STATUS,"New"),"New",(PRIORVALUE(STATUS))
IF(ISPICKVAL(STATUS,"L2 Support"),"L2",(PRIORVALUE(STATUS))
IF(ISPICKVAL(STATUS,"Escalated to L3"),"L3",(PRIORVALUE(STATUS))
IF(ISPICKVAL(STATUS,"Escalated to Engineering"),"Eng",(PRIORVALUE (STATUS))
)
)
)
)

This formula is probably what I needed, but currently SF doesn't support usage of PRIORVALUE to create a custom text field....
