Impacts of New Fields and Features
Are there any new fields or features we should know about from any of the functional areas that may impact reporting?
From Recent Meetings
We will be getting new data fields for the Open Access app - more details coming
Timezone format is not consistent across the tables in FOLIO, which impacts LDP and Metadb
Nassib confirmed that he does not change timezone settings as part of the ETL with the LDP/Metadb software, so whatever is in FOLIO is what we get in LDP/Metadb

FOLIO Analytics Update
FOLIO Analytics 1.7 for Poppy was released, but there is a delay in the release for FOLIO Poppy

(from Tod) There should be a way to interrogate the Postgresql schemata to find out which tables have more than one JSONB column
can use the `information_schema.columns` view
Only one table known so far re: #58: folio_entities_links.instance_authority_linking_rule
