This tool is good only for the creation of simple columns quickly because there is no option to set the data type-specific properties. The new data types (Customer, Choices, File) are not supported and there has been no update for a while. Lack of documentation and hard to guess the options available to enter in the free text cells and it would be great to have them as drop-down cells.

Be very leery of this plugin it will change properties of your attributes you are not wanting updated. See bug #23 on the project home page.

The tool is awesome. Make it very easy to create attributes. Few feedback - that it creates the field with default size as 0-100 for single line of text, 0-1000 for Currency, instead let it be created with default value or an option to define that, while creating, would be great.

Great Plugin, make the work easier! I used it to add the same attribute to many entities. Just at the first time was scary, because the action was set to delete, even though Delete was not checked in Settings.

(Ed Biggs, )
Excellent. It really is one of those must-have tools! Possible bug - can't update the attribute descriptions for contacts or accounts!
