When creating a join in the attribute table using the Add Join geoprocessing tool:

The first thing I always do after creating the join is go into the FC properties and turn off a bunch of the join fields.

It would be more efficient to skip the FC Properties step and just enable/disable the join fields right in the Add Join window.


Could that functionality be added?



I'm aware that I can hide fields in the attribute table by right-clicking a field header —> Hide Field. That works, but is tedious when hiding tens of fields.

And I'm aware that I can omit fields in a query layer's SQL definition. That works, but doesn't let me use those fields for other things like a definition query. And doesn't help when joining to a FC or table.
