Include FastTrack Mapping ID in IGC Query Metadata

Currently there is no way to include the mapping id from a fasttrack mapping in the query tool in IGC. This is critical because there is no way of sorting in IGC query results, it sorts alphabetically for the first column by default. Because we are unable to sort the mappings appear in a random order and do not matchup with the positions of the column in the target table.

Including the mapping id as metadata that i can include as part of my query will allow us to sort the export from IGC in the same way that we would see the target table.

    Hi Marc, This is a change to IGC not FastTrack. But i understand your comment.

    Thanks for your idea. FastTrack has been deprecated going forward, and therefore we are unable to bring forward this idea.
