Dear Strapi Community,

with the following commit the cellFormatter function has been removed:

Since we are using this in our production code, I would like to know why and what would be the alternative to format your cells in a custom column?

Looks like it was related to this PR:

Thanks for the answer. I just don’t see how one is related to the other. Why would you make Strapi less flexible without a good reason to do so? How is the requirements process? Can we create merge requests of our own or can we ask for code changes somewhere?

I’ve opened Add cellFormatter support by markkaylor · Pull Request #17347 · strapi/strapi · GitHub to fix the issue.

Thanks a lot @markkaylor this will greatly simplify things for us!

@markkaylor @codekultur In Strapi 4.12.x, the ListView Component does not use TableRows anymore, so I patch with packages/core/admin/admin/src/content-manager/pages/ListView/index.js
