Load my data - not working with Map Tool

When I load municipal data using the Load my data tool I cannot use it with the map tool.
There is no option to specify the Key Type to join the data to the municipal gemoetry.
I want a simplified drop down to ask the user for the basic data types such as:
- Census 2010 Tracts
- Census 2000 Tracts
Behind the drop down when loaded it would know the data format (Key Type) that I specified when I loaded the geometries, string vs numeric.

Are you refering to the combo box in the "Add New Data Source" tool?
If yes, then that leads into issue #1150.
The keytype (and the key column) needs to be user friendly. I did not even believe it worked. Andy had to prove it to me.
It only populates the drop down with keytypes used within an existing visualization.
We keep getting requests from users wanting to load their own data. But if it is not general geographies such as census tracts or municipal data it is very difficult to explain.
