@yyyguy thanks for the feedback! We definitely understand the flow you are describing. We discussed using the approach you are describing. The main reasons we went with the current approach of having the user change the options after paste are instead of a blocking modal are
- If we get the defaults right for majority of cases, then it will reduce the total number of actions required by a user to accomplish the task at hand. The goal in genera is to help a user accomplish the task at hand as quickly as possible in as fewer steps as possible.
- New users who are not yet familiar with the concepts of Table and Views may not find the blocking modal beneficial since they may not understand the difference to make the right choice.
That said, we are still iterating on this and as we roll it out to more users we may change this based on how we observe the feature being used.
