Create a custom table
You can create a custom table from a source data table to define and edit the columns that you want to work with. All your custom tables will appear as common data tables in the finder.
Why can't I see my custom table in the finder?
Take in mind that new custom tables may take up to several minutes to be available in Data Search → Explore Your Data.
For example, this may be useful when you send data to the Devo platform from a source that has not a tag defined yet. In this case, your raw data will be stored in a
my.app table. You can query the necessary data and create a custom table only with the required columns.
- Go to Data Search and open the data table you want to use as the base for your custom table.
- Select Additional Tools → Custom tables → New.
Give the table a name. Choose either
my.blend, then enter the third and fourth levels of the table name.
We recommend using
my.synthesisfor custom tables and
my.blendfor union tables. This way the table name can help you to better identify what kind of table it is.
Configure the custom table fields. Select New Field to add new fields to the custom table. You can also edit the columns' values and names or delete them.
Click OK when you are done. The new custom table will appear in Data Search → Explore Your Data. As said above, this may take several minutes.
