  • Thanks for updating the field description. Do we need more info on this, though, e.g. which indicators use this? In which case it should probably be added to the indicators. It almost seems like taking it to a bit of an extreme to document this, but on the other side, it's one of those things that only you know, Julie, so it would be hard to recreate a report and get this right unless it's documented.
