I have 31 points in a shapefile, which delimit a field (it's an irregular shape). I want to connect those points so they create the boundary of a polygon. Does anybody know a kind of "connect the dots" tool?

The plugin you are looking for is called Points2One. (You might have to allow experimental plugins to install it.)

If this doesnt work you could try the convex hull tool. – Stevetech Feb 19 '13 at 20:32
The convex hull tool solves a different problem though. It's not a replacement. – underdark Feb 19 '13 at 20:33
