Field Definitions Version 0.91 (Beta) Published

Today the openfunds fields list was expanded and improved. Version 0.91 adds 20 new useful fields, as well as field updates. One major change is the reduction of ambiguity concerning fields populated with “unknown”. From now on, please omit the entry “unknown” and simply leave it blank instead (refer to the whitepaper “The Ambiguity of Empty Fields”). Also new; if a field populated with [IGNORE] is uploaded, the receiving database value will remain unchanged.

An automated option for calculating correct local time without manual intervention due to regional daylight savings time has been introduced based on the tz database. This facilitates the automated insertion of correct times based on tz database time zone convention (ex. “Europe/Paris”). Manual entry of time is still supported.

The list itself and its corresponding changelog can be found in the Fields section.
