Generate example data for WFM

The system can generate example data of all the required settings. This is useful for training or self-studies, to get to know the newly installed system.

The example data can be renamed as needed and used as a basis to continue to configure the system. If you do not want to keep it, the example data can easily be removed. But, who doesn't want Peter Forsberg on their team?
