We've been recently manipulating large hierarchies (>1000 members) by hand using the modeler UI.
There's a couple of improvements there that would greatly reduce the amount of time required to edit a hierarchy without resorting to database access.
1) Provide a process dimension button within the member list header tab (for instance after import, export and configure) The fact that you need to go to "all dimensions", find the dimension you were working on (possibly using the search) and then hit process takes a lot of time. We usually deploy the full model instead because it's easier to do, even if it's not the recommended practice.
2) Provide a "Move Before / After" (select member) option so that one does not need to either click repeatedly up or down until you get the item to the position you want or to remove the members and insert them again closer to the desired position. Ideally the member moved should also inherit the same PC level as the selected member.
3) Ideally there should be an easy way for end users to move members within a dimension memberlist from a dashboard and not need to get into modeller.
