Disable Trigger and Validation Rules while running dataloader operation

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)


We are having large number of triggers and validation rules in our salesforce production org. We also do manual dataloader operation frequently. It would be really good if dataloader can provide facility to skip triggers and validation rules ( e.g. to provide checkbox to skip ) while running dataloader operation.
Manually deactivating and activating trigger is time consuming and on top of that it also affects live production users.
