latest update comment: source fields selection for edit forms

Hi PA Team,


latest update - some great new features, thanks!

I'm not sure it qualifies as an idea - more of feedback, but one comment on usability I'd like to raise is the new Field chooser for data source experience.

Overall it's much better, but we've lost something that was pretty cool and is now a bit painful by comparison.  The ability to check/uncheck fields from the entire list of source fields was very helpful - now it seems like we have to use the ... menu on each card in the fields list to remove a field.  Not just that, but first we have to select the card on the list to expand it and get the ... menu option, then click on the ... menu, then select remove.   We can 'collapse all' fields but not 'expand all' fields, so pretty much forced to do three clicks for each field. 

In contrast, adding a field is as easy as it used to be with the checkbox experience - except you can only add fields from this view, not remove any.  So adding and removing fields are now two different actions on two different menus with two different experiences.

With over 80 columns on a single source this get's pretty tedious if you only want to update one or two columns using a form.

I like the "add fields" control - including the currently selected cards in the "Add fields" view could improve the experience - Perhaps we can look at changing "Add fields" to "Edit fields" and change the "Add" button to "Update" while including currently selected fields in the control?  The ability to 'add all' or 'remove all' might also help approaching your desired selection from either side of the clickfest.  

As always, love your work Smiley Happy

Kind regards,
