AdamS Posted February 20, 2018 Report Share Posted February 20, 2018 I have a functional question which I'm hoping to get answered. I'm curious as to the need for re-indexing when creating custom columns. As with all things that seem simple in my mind I'm sure there is a reason for it, but this question could possibly morph into a feature request depending on how it is accomplished. My basic understanding of Intella is that the indexing process creates a database file which has pretty much all the information we see in displayed nicely in the GUI. Every piece of readable data has already been included in the database, so when we are creating custom columns there is no new information introduced to the database, we are creating a new link or relationship. How this question has arisen for me is for a colleague who wanted to change the naming convention when exporting some items to a universal date, so for today rather than the Australian version of 20/02/2018 he wants 20180220. This can't be accomplished with the current naming options as they are based on the columns available. I can't make any changes to the date/time format in preferences as they are all based on Country. Is it possible within the framework of Intella to have custom columns run on some sort of background 'refresh' rather than a full index? Or alternatively how about the ability to define custom columns before indexing? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
