We're using visibility filters on our components as a way to show and hide components. If someone has a specific permission set, like "new feature pilot permissionset," we use that to show a component for those users.
We would like more flexibility in what we use visibility filters for. For example, we'd like to set an organization wide setting that says "this feature is now available for everyone." We'd like to be able to roll out a new feature to some users, then when it's ready, role it out to all users, without making a code change. The problem is visibility filters can only read from the current user or current record, so there's no way to check for something like "show this component if the user has this permission set, OR if this org wide setting is in place."
Another potential solution to build this feature is to add a custom field to the user object, and when we toggle a feature setting, do a mass update to modify all users to set the appropriate flag. However I'd like to avoid the mass update route if there's a potential way to do it dynamically.
