  1. Have an option to automatically backups tables that are in BigQuery.

    Instead of having to do it manually, it would be good to have an option that automatically backups tables that are in BigQuery (it could be done on a daily basis or monthly basis). The backups could be stored on Cloud Storage or another place.

    • Transfer Dataset across projects

      Ability to transfer an entire dataset to a different project.

      Possible Solutions:

      1. An option saying transfer dataset to a specific email address where the new owner decides to which project the dataset needs to be added.

      2. A "Copy Dataset" option which copies all tables in a dataset to a different project. In this case, the current user needs to have the associated required permissions for both the projects to do the same.

        • Ability to use Cloud SQL (postgres and mysql) as External Tables

          Currently we push many tables from relational stores, which hold dimension data, into BigQuery. Being able to push a subquery out to these databases on demand eliminates lag and a whole lot of ETL work.
