Add metadata visibility on tables in the project


#1

When i import a table with the query editor, types (metadata) are clearly shown. But inside the project, we only see column names and not their type. Its seems to me the only way to see metadata is to right click on a column and choose “metadata”. It could be good to add a symbol next to column name : # for number, calendar for date, Abc for text

I see where this suggestion is coming from. Although, keep in mind that in EasyMorph columns are not strictly typed – a column can contain mix of values of different type – text, numbers, dates, etc.

In version 4.0 we will be adding column lineage – the capability to track a column down to it’s source. It could be a good idea to include the original column’s type (in addition to name), just for metadata reference.

Thank you for the suggestion.
