The current functionality of the import functionality forces us to predefine an external csv file that has predefined fields, etc..

Using an affordable 3rd party script that I recently found (~ $90 USD) we'll be able import any datafeed from any source (url, server, filesystem) in php, it will iterate through a list of "record" objects, no matter what the source file is.

Each record has a key and a value (field/value)
You can also access specific information about a record by providing a key value.

This would allow the creation of datafeed import profiles that would contain information as to the file location, the mapping information between [database product, image and feature fields] and the datafeed fields.

If you'd be interested in developing this type of admin addon, please get in touch with for specific requirements.
