Create interface for upload/download data
with the interface it is possilbe to create a desktop data transfer routine for update/upload data.

Asume the following scenario:
You are using AppCreator to enter data and have a good simple interface for operational data queries (the views).
For reporting purposes you are using pentaho (pentaho.com) an open source Reporting/ Business Intelligence suite (yes, it runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows).
It would be helpful to upload all the data with one click of a button (i.e. create .csv files for all tables in one go). In addition the possibility to delete records within a certain data range (because you have them in your reporting environment and you don't need them operationally any moren - that applies to transaction data and not to master data) would be very helpful!
