Functions to import CSV and Excel files of e.g. actors or places. 

 At first as a basic version for lists simple version, most likely with information like: name, description, origin_id. predefined fields. Later is should also be possible to import associated dates, types, geographical information and link already imported entities (e.g. actor participates at an event with a function). 

 It is planned to implement a crusader database with data provided by Johannes Preiser-Kapeller to test the concept. 

 Needs an additional database schema "import" where information about origin project and origin identifier which will be linked to OpenAtlas entity ids. 


 * A preview function before actual import 
 * Example images, example files for download

 * Dates (format 2018-12-31) at actor, place, event 
 * origin id (e.g. GIS for places (decimal degrees) 
 * Sex for persons 


 * Test for duplicates 
 * Look into selecting fields dynamically (order and which ones) 
 * What to retrace or link later) do with types (already existing and new ones)
