Import Structure from Excel

Backend
On our radar
It would be very useful if we had the possibility to import a structure from an Excel file, just like we do with entities. Sometimes we have Excel files to import with a large number of fields and this could improve the time we take to create all the structure to store the information.

Hi,

you can always import as an entity and then copy and paste as a structure.

Hi Ricardo,
I know that..It was just an idea to avoid another step / workaround and make it faster.

It would be really helpful to have this as an option.  Many times user want a report and send us an excel spreadsheet with the details they need or we need to do a data extract in a specific format.  This would save a lot of time creating the attributes one-by-one.  

(optional) The structure import could even use some of the data from excel(if it's provided) as sample data or to determine data type.
