Make it easy to change a chassis in MAX from a live chassis to a simulated chassis

I find myself quite often needing to modify the DaqMX tasks of chassis that aren't currently plugged into my system.  I develope on a laptop, and then transfer the compiled programs to other machines.  When the other machines are running the code and thus using the hardware I have to export my tasks and chassis, delete the live but unplugged chassis from my machine, then import the tasks and chassis back in generating the simulated chassis.  When I'm finished with the task change and code update, to test it I have to export the tasks and chassis, plug in the chassis, and re-import to get a live chassis back.

 

Can it be made as simple as right clicking on a chassis and selecting 'simulated' from the menu to allow me to configure tasks without the hardware present?

 

Thanks,
