Concat function in Match Calc field definitely works, I am using it on
several sites. Here's an example from one of them:
(concat (date (str Y-m-d) grantDate) (str " ") grantPrice)
Here, grantDate is a Date/Time tracker field, so we are parsing it using
the date function and then concatenating the grantPrice which is another
tracker field. We also separate by empty space. This goes directly into
the Calculation param of the field.
Please also make sure Re-calculation event is save, so the field updates
on each item save operation. Otherwise, you will need to rebuild the
index in order to have it recalculated.
