Directory Tool - Allow to only retrieve FullPath

95% of the times I see myself using the Directory Tool, it is only to access the FullPath content, so I immediatly add a Select tool to deselect the other attributes the tool returns.

Is there any chance to add a checkbox to only retrieve FullPath?

I couldn't find a previous idea on this, but let me know if it already exists.

I do the same.  This would be great.

Agreed and I think it would also be great to add a date filter to the tool.

Agreed and John coming in with a date filter addition too!  I'm on board with both!

 

While we're at it, let's add a select tool option for a Field Info tool too.  My use of that tool usually involves adding in a select tool after to remove everything but Name and Type.

Select tool functionality would be great.  I have never built a module with a directory tool where I didn't put a select tool after it!

Amazing idea! The checkbox would be more than enough, but to have a select tool option would be even better!

This will save a lot of time and effort!
