Should we get rid of [formula] tag and use more meaningful tags like [excel-formula] or [google-sheets-formula]?

+5
−0

We currently have quite a few questions tagged with formula. However, [formula] seems so general that I am inclined to replace it to a more specific formula based on the context. Examples:

  • [excel-formula]
  • [google-sheets-formula]
  • [lotus-formula]

Is it OK to perform this tag split?

Possibly [spreadsheet-formula] would work, with extra tags ([excel] and [google-sheets] already exist) where the question is about something specific to one engine. Peter Taylor‭ 8 months ago

@Peter Taylor‭ Combining several tags to form a meaning rarely ends well. I think making one tag per program will work better in the long run. Lundin‭ 8 months ago
