I suggest implementing a feature where we can use Saved Export Definitions as Import Data Sources. Right now we can use a File or Connect to Anaplan Model - I would love to be able to select Saved Export Definitions in addition to current option of Lists, Modules and Saved Views.
The natural place for this, in my opinion, would be in the Connect to Anaplan Model menu (List, Module, Saved View and now Export Definition).
Off the top of my head, this would be extremely powerful for: Exporting and Re-Importing Model History for analysis, Exporting and Re-Importing Model Users list for various uses (I know you can workaround with User dim module), Exporting and Re-Importing Actions menu (for automatically analyzing things like the last time a process was run). All of these examples are possible today but require either tedious human interaction (export and download file manually, re-upload manually) or a custom integration using API. With this proposed feature, you could do it all with one click and never download a file to machine or server.
Overall this would be another step in the right direction: Workflow.
This is very similar to idea posted here, the only difference is it is more broad (to just generally use Saved Exports as sources, not specifically Settings menu) and hopefully can keep the conversation alive.
