Date/Time Last Updated

Is there a way to display a dataset’s metadata in workshop? What is your preferred way of displaying the date/time data was last updated?

In the abstract, you’re basically talking about using stuff from Foundry’s dataset layer in its Ontology layer (sure, Workshop has its Resource List widget, but that’s the exception to the rule).

With that in mind, what you should consider is creating an object type for datasets and/or Foundry resources. Create the backing dataset for that object type with Python or Java transforms, leveraging the dataset APIs via external transforms when required.

This approach will let you do things like make custom data dictionaries using Workshop, Slate, or the Ontology SDK.
