I'd like to be able to use "to the power of" exponential functions in a UI-only field. Use case is estimating a payment amount on the front end of a public site. We have a formula field to do this, but the formula is blank until the record is saved, I'd like to show the calculation before saving. But it requires, in particular, this formula: "(1+ MonthlyInterest__c ) ^ NoofPayments2__c", where the ^ symbol represents "to the power of".

Would be great to see that as an option in the UI-only dropdown list of Operators.

In the mean time, any way to hack this?
