Create/Import table from photo
Anyone who created a database from scratch knows that creating a table and importing data is a pain. You should save your data in CSV format, clean up it, carefully select each column type and name, etc.

It takes a whole lot of time and we think that creating/importing table from photo is a solution. Everybody have a mobile phone with camera now, so take a picture of your screen or paper document (if you’ve multipage document or large dataset you can create a panorama photo or record a video) and upload it using "Table import from photo".

System will recognize columns, their widths, types and data properly. In case you’ve document photo it’ll be able to even create a form for that table automatically.

What do you think?

Sounds very useful - I really look forward to see this implemented. If in addition you could make sure the "Date created" defaults to 2016-04-01 it would be just perfect.

I think being able to do it from a smoke signal would be better...

Just examining the date function. Turns out Today()= April 1.
