    In ModelBuilder with the append tool, if I add a new field to the intput dataset it does not automatically appear in the field list to map to a field in the target dataset.  I need to switch the schema type to test and back to no test but then I lose all of the field mappings i previously configured.  If you have a target dataset with lots of fields this is a significant amount of re-work, just because I forgot to include a field in my input dataset.
