Delete Old/Missing Column Names In Join/Tables, etc

Asteroid

I would like the ability to delete or hide old/missing column names.

Created a workflow. Had to change workflow to fix an error. However, previous column names are still showing up as yellow.
It would be nice if I could delete or hide them since they are no longer around or needed.

Hello @kgordish

 

You have the ability to do this from the "Options" in the upper left corner where you can select/deselect all fields.

There is an option which reads "forget missing fields" which will remove this from your list.

 

The reason they remain is in case your dataset changes back to the original layout, it keeps your original work listed on those rows so that if the input data ever reverts, your original work remains.


Hope this helps!

@TrevorS Tip of the hat. Thank you for sharing. Did not know it was in the options.
