Updating Column Names and Descriptions on Datasets

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.
