One of the common things that I find myself doing is to create a random data-set to learn a tool or to test a theory or to build an experiment; or to load-test a flow.
It would be helpful to have a data generator input that allows you to specify some attributes, which then allows you to generate randomized outputs:
- For Int: random between X and Y; with Z rows
- For dates: random between X and Y; with z rows
- for strings; random strings of length X; with z rows; with selectors to allow for letters; whitespace; numbers; and invisible (e.g. control) characters
This would really make it very rapid to whip together data to test a process
