Adding data to a PostgresDatabase with DB Manager in QGIS makes it really easy to add data to the database. That's a lovely feature - thanks a lot for this!
A handy improvement to DB Manager would be to add some kind of possibility to enter default values to use when adding data with DB Manager.
It could be to add a settings-panel to the DB Manager from where you can open a setting-dialog in which it should be possible to enter some default values for use in the import-function, e.g. define a default target SRID. Afterwards these definitions would be used as default when using DB Manager to add data to a database.
I have attached a mockup of what this could look like.
Why is this helpful feature?
Quite often people use the same coordinate reference system again and again, by having a place to define standard values, one could make sure that data always is saved with the same coordinate reference system.
