Updating Column Names and Descriptions on Datasets

Date: 
Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Publishers of datasets on data.iowa.gov can now more easily update and change names and descriptions for columns within the dataset.  Previously, you had to create a working copy of your dataset before being able to edit names and columns.  You are now able to edit them instantly without creating a working copy.  This makes it much easier to keep this information up to date - particularly with large datasets.  However, changing the data type, or updating the data still requires you to create a working copy first.
