Table schema: option to add a description to columns


#1

Hey,

Would be really helpful to have the ability to (manually) add a label and a description to each column each table schema, in order to give more details regarding the meaning of each column to team members who don’t familiar with the DB structure.

In the system of the company I’m working for, there’re a lot of tables with a lot of misunderstood columns names (unless if you’re someone from the developer team who query the DB a lot and got used to the names).

Anyway, it’s becoming a problem with it comes to accessibility by other teams in the company who can’t be sure what columns represents.

As a solution, I’m currently giving them a dictionary stored in our internal knowledge base, by I thought about having this kind of docs inside Redash, as part of each table’s schema.

What do you think? I’m curious of other people here having this issue.
