I have a requirement to create a new column in the Contact 2 table and usually I do this in goldmine. By doing this process in Goldmine, Im required to get everyone out of Goldmine which is not doable during office hours.
Ive read I can create the column via the SQL manager but Im just wondering when doing it this way, is the process any different from doing within goldmine apart from everyone logging out of goldmine.
Also, when creating the table via the SQL manager and not via goldmine, will this make any differences to the way reports find data in my various tables/columns etc?
And finally, will these cause any problems on the live environment - last thing I want is when I create the table - everyone gets booted out of goldmimne.
