As an archivist or other person doing imports, I would like to download import templates from within the application


There are some templates for importing data into the application (CSV for accessions, CSV for digital objects, soon-to-be spreadsheet for archival objects). While I can go to GitHub or a documentation page to find the link to download them, it would be handy if there were a place within the application to download them. The easiest way to do this would be to have a page with links for the different template that kicks off the requisite download when a link is clicked.

I would suggest making getting to the page a menu item on the gear menu, next to background jobs. It would have the same permissions as imports (i.e. if someone can do imports they can see the Download Templates menu item and download page).
