Watchlist Issues with VolumeAve

Has anyone been able to display Average Volume and/or % Avg Volume in a ThinkorSwim Watchlist? The reason is so you can glance at your Watchlist and tell immediately which stocks are trading at higher than normal Average Volume. It is VERY useful especially if your stock is trading around or above a breakout point.

I have used several platforms in the past including E-signal, Qcharts, and Quotetracker, and never had a problem with displaying Average Volume, and % AverageVol in a quote sheet, AKA, Watchlist.

I can get somewhat close to the 3 month Yahoo and FinViz Average Volume readings in ThinkorSwim on the Watchlist by selecting VolAvg and using AGGREGATION = DAILY, PLOT = VolAve, AND LENGTH = 90, but the decimal places are way off and some of the numbers are formatted in scientific notation.

This is pretty basic and important daily trending/tracking information, so I am amazed that ThinkorSwim does not have working Watchlist selections for Average Volume and %Average Vol. Maybe I am just missing something simple? if someone has figured this out could you please share how you did it? Thank you!
