Can we create tables with table names having macros in Dataiku?

Suppose I want to create tables that are created every month. I want table names with the datepart attached to the table name, for example, "My_table_01082021" where the datepart (01082021) is added as a macro variable to "My_table_{@macro_date}", which will definitely help us in distinguishing the tables of different days or months or years.

So, does Dataiku provides this feature?

If Not, Is this present on your To-do list? Can we expect this feature in the upcoming versions.

Hi Pankaj,

We want to understand this requirement further. So, we need your help with the following questions:

  1. Do you want to create tables with different dates for eye-ball-checking purposes or development purposes?
  2. Have you explored the alternative approach such as partitioning?
