I'd like to be able to input a formula as a column so Blackboard can perform calculations. For example, in Angel (and WebCT), I was able to create a column that would calculate the number of points a student would need to get a certain grade.

Yes ! I'd vote for this idea, as this is something that I'm often asked for, and people end up exporting the grade center, do calculations in Excel, then re-import it (but they need to have cleaned their file of all formulas), it would save much time if it would be in the grade center already. Our main need is : professors want a weighted column but to be able to choose the total (right now it's always 100), as in France it's more common to have final grades on 20.

But being able to simply make any formula is much better !

Another example (but which would require formulas with "if" I guess): some professors give assignments for homework, they want to be able to assign some extra points depending on how many of those howeworks a student handed out (not the total number of points they got on the homework but simply the fact orf handing it out). Same story for attendance for example.
