Uploading form/case exports from Excel

Hey Dimagi,

Just a small complaint/suggestion: editing form and case exports in
CommCare HQ is very time consuming. In large surveys, having to drag and
drop fields takes forever, especially if you make changes to the survey,
because hidden values and new questions always appear at the bottom. Moving
questions into different folders causes their file path to change, and
since CommCare isn’t able to recognize it as the same question, it creates
a new field that also appears at the bottom.

Something that would make this much easier, in my opinion, is a way to
download exports into Excel, edit them there, and upload them back to
CommCare. Alternatively, being able to drag multiple fields at once would
also be very helpful.

Thanks for all the great work you do!

-Eric

Alternatively, if fields could just appear in the same order in the export
as they are put in the form itself, that would be even better!
