How can we improve Ignition?

Importing group of tags when using Modbus or Siemens devices

I use Modicon PLCs so Modbus TCP is my choice to communicate with SCADA.
As I see, it is not possible to import a group of tags from a Modbus device (a M340 PLC in my case) and I have to create every tag manually! But I have hundreds of tags in each project and it's not possible to enter every single tag manually. I believe this should be enhanced. At least, the user should be able to define a list of tags in a CSV file with a predefined format (let's say tag name and data type are defined in two columns), and importing the CSV file should bring all tags into Ignition.
The same for Siemens PLCs.
