You are forced to store/manage custom functions redundantly | Any solutions?

Hello there,

you are forced to store code (custom functions) redundantly if you want to use the same functionality in multiple departments. I don't understand that you can't define global functions. When I make a change to a function I may have to do it very often according to the number of departments.

Is there a solution to the problem? @Community members how do you do it? Do you have any idea for me?

Negative aspects summarized:

Maintainability: every time you duplicate the same function in different departments, the maintenance work increases significantly. If you need to make a change to that function, you need to make sure that you make that change in every instance of the function. This significantly increases the risk of errors and inconsistencies.

Time and labor: Storing code redundantly requires additional time and labor. Each copy of the function must be created and maintained. This leads to inefficient use of development resources, especially when the same function is used in many departments.

Error-prone: Adding or updating functions across multiple departments can lead to human error. It is easy to forget an instance or not perform an update consistently. This can lead to serious malfunctions or issues.

Consistency: If you use the same function in different departments, it is important to ensure that all instances of that function work consistently. If you have multiple copies of it, it's harder to ensure they're all at the same level.

Resource waste: Redundancy of code also means that more memory is required, as each copy of the function takes up space. Of course, this is not an aspect I care about as a Zoho user, but I thought I'd mention it anyway, even though I could totally care less. :-D
