    Thanks so much for the request! This seems great, we're thinking about a feature very related to this. I'd love to learn more about what actions you would take with this additional information available?

    As I am not familiar with all the data sources that I am connecting with Fivetran it would help me a lot to quickly identify where to focus in the sometimes enormous amount of tables and fields of a certain data model.
