With pipeline vs without pipeline

When copying a table to the current project, you can choose whether to copy the pipeline as well. The pipeline represents your edit history in the original table. If you choose to copy a table with the pipeline, it means that you want to keep the pipeline in the copied table. Otherwise, the copied table will start a new pipeline that is separate from the original pipeline.
Take the below graph as an example. Suppose you copy the us_counties table to the current project twice. The one is with the pipeline, and the other one is without the pipeline. As you can see, you can see the trail of the "with pipeline" table, whereas it is empty below the "w/o pipeline" table.

When to copy a table with a pipeline?

If you want to set up Data Sync in your copied table, you have to copy the pipeline as well.
