How can we improve PI Integrators?

Allow users to "Add Columns" while "Modifying View" even if there is no time series values selected.

Allow users to "Add Columns" while "Modifying View" even if there is no time series values selected.

This will let us export things like 'path', 'description', 'category', 'name', etc. Which may be useful on their own, or when joined with another table.

This has the additional benefit of making table joins easier, as time series tables are almost guaranteed not to have any columns with unique entries.

    Also, this will allow us to provide table normalization, allowing us to put the metadata in a separate table. This way we will be improving the performance on the front end (i.e., the BI tool), since all metadata (which is static data) will not need to be repeated on the table that will contain the time series data.

    This would be great for master data that we are sharing thru to end user spreadsheets without needing to clutter with a timestamped data.
