Add a feature in Alteryx designer to add table & field comment to snowflake database

 

We are using Alteryx designer to bulk upload to Snowflake database. We also use Alteryx Connect to pick up metadata from Snowflake. It would be awesome if the designer can add table and field description and snowflake loader can pick up the description automatically. 

 

As of now, the metadata loader doesnt pick up metadata content in real time. This feature will motivate our analysts to document which will improve Connect adoption in our department.

Hello, Can you also have a look on https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Write-Alteryx-field-descriptions-to-database... ? The global idea is to have the description/comment for every datasource (excel, SQL Database, Hive, Snowflake, .hyper...), in and out.
