With Arcpy it is possible to enable Time on a MXD's feature layers. This can be done with the 'UpdateLayerTime' utility from the 'arcpy.mapping'. We also want this utility for tables! After support from Esri, it is confirmed that it is not possible to enable Time on a MXD's tables.


Some extra info, when you put a MXD's table in the UpdateLayerTime utility you get an error.


We would like to get the feature to enable Time on tables with Arcpy.


With kind regards,

Cees van Altena

Can you describe how you use a standalone table in a time-enabled map?  This might help understand why this functionality is needed.

Thank you.
