Delete a column of a dataset

Delete a column of a dataset


Spotzi Mapbuilder allows you to delete a column of a dataset. Keep in mind that every column is a field of a map feature. So if you for example want to delete a column with information about the postal code, the map connected to this dataset will not depict postal codes anymore . To delete a column you have to follow the steps outlined below:

1. Go to MY DATA and view the dataset of which you want to delete a column.

Quick tip! Export your data before deleting a column
Before you delete a column, always make sure you made a backup of your data. Deleting columns is permanent so make sure you exported the data before you delete any columns.
