Great idea. It would be a useful function.
Very useful. many thanks
it would be awesome to implement this idea ! it will avoid many mistakes
I agree! This issue will significantly affect the user experience if it won't be fix before the wave2 updates are installed.

I'd like to see a robust UI where you can set up a "Environment Copy Template" that identifies the source (almost always prod) and the target (some sandbox), and enables you to select specific tables to copy data from, and more importantly identify tables you do NOT want to bring over. Ideally, for those specific tables copied, we'd be able to specify an advanced-find like/FetchXML based query that would identify the specific rows to copy (such as "Last 3 Months", e.g.). (It could also be a "solution-based" copy, where we create a solution that identifies the tables to copy.)
We use lookups extensively, and hence have dozens of reference tables that need to copied to each environment. We have years of historical transactional data that does NOT. Today, because i have to copy the entire production data set, we spend days running bulk delete jobs and Power Automate flows to remove data in a copied environment. Very inefficient use of resources.
This WAS a fantastic feature, but was removed in the last few weeks. Why was it removed?
I agree. The ability to take picture/video of each step along with comments if an operator spotted a problem would be great. Custom solution like PowerApps might be possible, but being built into Guides makes managing the data easier.
I agree. Create a new MS filetype (i.e. .guides, etc.) save local file pass to customer and open. Sync with cloud.
To piggyback off of this. If you could add a query string variable to the end of the Guides link (i.e. &userId=12345, etc.) and this whole link got stored in the Guides table, then you could parse out the userID on completion of the Guide and identify who did what when. Possible solution for device licensed HoloLens.
