    Yes, in the Expression Builder.

    For example, new functions could be:

    • create_random_expression([0,9]*): generate a column with random values that matches that expression.

    • match_regex(field1, [0,9]*) that returns true or false if field1 values matches that expression.

    • add_days(date_field, 5) that add 5 days to the date_field.

    Hi Rodrigo - we need more information on where you need these functions? Is it in the 'Expression Builder' part of Modeler?
    Could you also share some samples or examples if possible?
