Unread by owner field - extremely frustratred

For some reason I can't get access to this field in any way through the force.com platform - can anyone shed any light? It's almost like salesforce just doesn't want to admit it's a field.

 

Using firebug, here is what came up:

 

 <input id="c_17" type="checkbox" value="UNREAD" name="c_17" checked="checked"/>
<label for="c_17">Unread By Owner</label>

 

It's clearly a field but any varient of "unread" in any type of formula or workflow does not work.

 

Anyone else bumping into the same issue?

On case ? HasCommentsUnreadByOwner the formula editor should show it, as should the schema tools (eclipse, soqlX etc)

Actually I'm looking to have access to the unread checkbox on leads.

I wish that worked! I am trying to use that in a formula for a workflow, and no dice. Here is what I have:

 

IsUnreadByOwner=True

 

No varients work:

 

{IsUnreadByOwner}=True

{!IsUnreadByOwner}=True
