I have an existing S3 Dataset task that ingests a file that has our customer usage in it. There are new columns we are including in the file. I was trying to edit the S3 task to add in the new columns, and it doesn't look like Gainsight picks up the new columns in the Columns section, but I can see the columns if I click "Preview." Is there a way to add new columns to the data file? Or do I have to create a new S3 Dataset task?

Hi Kaycee - I believe you should be able to add them if you deselect the Show Selected checkbox in the Columns section after you preview the file. Did you try that?

I tried that, but nothing showed up. We have our S3 rule trigger based on the Event of an S3 Import occurring. In order to Preview the file, I have to stop the schedule so that the file isn't ingested. If I try to Preview with the schedule in place, the file is already picked up and I get the notificaiton that there is no data file in the S3 bucket.

I was actually able to get this to work. Thanks.
