Potentially incorrect data types in the `schedule` table

My team have surfaced a few potential data type errors in the existing HSDS documentation. @davidraznick may already be all over this in 3.0, but I thought I would document our findings here just in case.


  • schedule.count has a type of date, but we are assuming this should really be a type of number.
  • bymonthday and byyearday have a type of number, but the descriptions say this is a comma separated list, which would required a type of string.

Thanks for this @skyleryoung ,

I’m catching up with David tomorrow so will make sure it’s on the radar.


@skyleryoung This has been added as an issue on our Github project today. Thanks again for flagging.

Hi all,

Just noting that we’ve tidied these up in this PR. We’ll have a run through all the types and descriptions as part of the 3.0 upgrade work. Thanks for flagging @skyleryoung


Awesome, my pleasure :slight_smile: Thanks guys.
