Add a custom unit entry option.
To help users keep up with the speed of new unit releases (weekly now, in some cases), and to help alleviate the burden on community catalogue creators, allow manual and custom entries to be added to a roster.
As an example, a user could open up a unit type / role option(HQ, Elite, etc) and there would be a "Custom Entry" selection. When selected, one could just manually enter stats, a total point value, and some miscellaneous text to define a new unit that has yet to be created in a catalogue. This would also help users who create custom units for narrative scenarios. Allowing these custom entries to be saved as favorites would help greatly as well.
Extending this option to weapons may also be necessary, just in case the manual entry units have new gear or abilities previously unseen.
Or, even just as a stopgap, the ability to have a freeform text field as a unit entry in a roster will be helpful. Narrative list builders could input specific rules in these, and new players could put reminders and tactics.
Yep, I’ve been meaning to do something like this.
It will be a pro feature for sure.

I'd love to see this. I have no idea how to do anything with data editor; it does not seem like a tool for simpletons. I have several custom tanks I'd like to be able to make entries for.
This would be awesome. I'd definitely get the pro version if the custom entry became a reality. I could input the Rikarius Pattern Razorback I helped create.
