INCLUDES() should accept TEXT() as well as text literals

Not Categorized

We should be able to use INCLUDES to see if any TEXT based field or literal is in that multi-picklist. I should be able to compare with text fields or with picklist fields using TEXT.

To put a comparison in their that forces a text literal instead of simply text is crazy limiting. The included formula should work.

    Discount  <> 0,
    NOT( $Profile.Id = "00eA0000000DtyE"),
        INCLUDES(Product2.Discount_Types__c, TEXT(Discount_Type_Commercial__c)),
        INCLUDES(Product2.Discount_Types__c, TEXT(Discount_Type__c))
