Duplicate fields

Post by bdurfee » 2019-05-03 17:27

It would be very convenient to be able to duplicate a field with the click of a button. For example, if a record has three images (one for phone, tablet and desktop), there might be 3 image upload fields. It would be nice to create the first one and then just click a button to duplicate the field and rename it.

Would be nice, sure!

For now you can use Copy & Paste buttons for fields (and even for whole tables):
  1. Select the column (or table) you wish to duplicate
  2. Copy the selected item

  3. In case someone did not notice, yet:
    Have a look at the bottom right. There you will see what's in clipboard currently:

  4. Now select a different table...
  5. ...and paste the column:

  6. That's it
Best,

PS: Would also be nice if we could multi-select more than one field for copying and pasting. For example in many tables I need columns created_by, created_on, modified_by and modified_on columns. It takes a lot of time to copy and paste field by field for n tables.

Yes, would be great if this could be done with templates or import selected fields from other project.
