How can we make DocumentCloud better?

Exporting timelines

Complex documents are often best made sense of when timelines are extracted from them. The ultility of DocumentCloud's timeline function is limited as one cannot have a complete timeline overview at once, and as one is unable to edit the results.
I suggest a function to export the timeline to Excel or similar, with values of "Date", "Document excerpt" and "Source [indicating which document and page, and perhaps even a hyperlink back to it in DocumentCloud]".
In the resulting spreadsheet one would be able to do one's own edits and insertions, making further sense of it all.
