referenced TypeTree (parts)

You can build one TypeTree or one strucutre and can use it for example as part of choice-group in another TypeTree. Everybody that use TypeTree as a kind of central unit and have to reuse these structures in other interfaces will benefit.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

Let's say you can get either a CSV or JSON file in the interface. For the JSON file you already have a complete TypeTree in several other interfaces but you don't want to change that completed TypeTree because the CSV structure have nothing in common with these other interfaces it would be great for the CSV-JSON-Interface to create a TypeTree that just can reference the JSON-structure of the already completed JSON and it gets updates of the JSON structure automaticly (compare to referenced functions)
