Enhancing guid() function to generate a guid from provided string

The current guid function is nice it generates and returns a guid.

Nicer will be the ability to pass a string argument and function returns a formatted guid. 

For example, we pass:

 

 

 

e9289aae83264470b848778688a77d9a

 

 

 

Function returns one of the following based on user requirement:

 

 

e9289aae-8326-4470-b848-7786-778688a77d9a

 

 

or 

 

 

{e9289aae-8326-4470-b848-7786-778688a77d9a}

 

 

C# already have a similar functionality.

 

Use Case:

There can be many, I was reading SharePoint folder guid and using that to update Model Driven App entity with same id.
