Allow more outputs for Case Expression (dates, emails, etc.)


In the Rules Engine, there are many use cases where it would be helpful to be able to output a date as well as email. Right now, we can only output booleans, numbers, or string fields.

@spencer_engel , I’m missing a convert-to-Idea-from-a-discussion magic on the platform currently so I’d request if you could pl post this as one. And help us expanding on some of the usecases and impact, examples, etc. Thank you.

I have moved it to the CS Ideas forum and it auto converts to an ‘Idea’ given that’s the only content-type it allows. Guess, I understand the system better now and thanks for the challenge @spencer_engel , the ‘Likes’ have become ‘Votes’.
