Access delivery date as a field

An entity may have data loaded from various partitions with different timestamps (delivery dates). Users are able to access that delivery date for each record as a field that can be transformed (sorted, routed, selected, etc.)

To add a load date field to an entity, select Include Load Date checkbox upon adding it as a source entity. The field name can be defined by users.

Include Load Date checkbox in Add Source wizard

The source entity on the canvas will now display with a delivery date field (though the data does not populate until the dataflow executes).
