Hey guys, been playing around with airbyte and it looks really cool. Couple of things that I see as roadblocks to adoption: 1) Scheduling with CRON: Can see the GitHub discussions on this so hoping this would be closed sometime soon. 2) Can't figure out how to sync only particular columns of a selected table to help keep the data warehouse lean. Was wondering if anyone had solved any of these or had some workarounds

Sounds like you could use dbt transformations to shape the output of your data, maybe that can be used?

Hi, we have around syncing only a particular columns of selected table. Please comment on this to help us prioritise!
otherwise, like what Anton says, one way is to use custom transforamations with dbt to filter retain a subset of the columns after the sync finishes

Thanks @Davin Chia (Airbyte) , have added comments and voted up.
Hey @Anton Nosovitsky, this can be done via dbt but seems like an unnecessary burden. Also adds to trasfer pipe and load. So not sure it's a long term solution.
