Hi Ethan,

If the new fields are something that the old documents are also supposed to
contain, you would need to reindex. e.g. in case you add a new copy field
or a new field in general that your raw document contains, you would need
to reindex.
If the new field would only be something that exists in future documents,
you wouldn't need to reindex.
