What is the proposed idea/solution?

Create / Download / Send to Drive csv with an automation so that you can back up tables or views or the results of find records action

How does is solve the user problems?

Snapshots are not a real backup solution since there is no way to restore them without braking any  third party integrations that would need to be re-made. The issue of the record ids in the snapshot  being different than in the original also  means copy/paste is out of the question for linked records.
Solution: automated csvs as partial table backups that you can actually import or paste into tables needing restoration

Would also help with certain kinds of integration

How was this validated?

It’s a good suggestion. Currently, you can only automate CSV backups by using an external CSV automation tool like Make’s CSV tools. (Documentation here, and basic introduction to Make here.)
