Action Button: Dynamic Display

Is there a way to have an action button on a case only display based off of another field on the case?  I have a 'case subtype" field which has a dropdown of many options.  I would like the Action button to only be visible on the case if the case subtype is 'Transfer Request'.  I have tried several options, but need some help with the formula. 

equal($case_subtype_c,"Transfer Request"),"true"))
