Add GetBaseURL() to the URL built-in functions

Builtin & User functions
On our radar
It would be very helpful to have a GetBaseURL function that would provide the current URL to the current application.  This is extrememly handy when you want to provide a link to the application in an email.

I think that already have it with GetBookmarkableURL()
Thanks Alberto.  But I don't want the page details.  

For example.  If my site is: http://server/app/page.aspx, I only want http://server/app returned regardless of where I am in the application.  If I'm at http://server/app/somewhere/home.aspx, I still only want http://server/app.
You can get the page URL and get only the path with the use of some buildIn functions
Substr()

Index()

Which is why it would be easier to have a simple function. 

Thank you anyway.

If someone still need it, heres my solution:

Substr(GetBookmarkableURL(),0, Index(GetBookmarkableURL(), GetPageName(),startIndex:,searchFromEnd:,ignoreCase:))

I'll add a vote.  Hector's solution worked for me in the interim.

This Substr don't work if you are using Chrome (version: 64.0.3282.137) with Android (version: 8.0.0). But the same test works on Chrome with iOS. 

Substr(GetBookmarkableURL(),0, Index(GetBookmarkableURL(), GetPageName(),startIndex:,searchFromEnd:,ignoreCase:))
