New UX - Copy across functionality

New UX - Copy across functionality

The copy across functionality that we have at the module level should also be available as an option for the end users in New UX.

Recently, came across with a use case where users want to copy the same numbers across different rows and columns in a time dimensioned module and the best thing to suggest was to ask for copy- paste using Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V OR importing data using a CSV. However, for copy-paste, the user had to scroll until the very end of rows/ columns to paste the data.

If we have copy across functionality available at the UX end, it'll help save a lot of users time and will give an additional flexibility for this kind of use cases.

My stakeholders have asked for the same - will this be on the roadmap? Or is there an alternative other than copy + paste manually?

Similar request is submitted in 2020 as well. That other one has higher vote count and hopefully higher chance to be noticed. Here is the link:

Hi @davewaller,

 

I think this is great news! Can you send a link to a page where we can find some more information about the solution?

 

Thanks!

@alber818 here's some quick documentation as well - it's short but sweet, but explains the subtle differences between board and worksheet pages.
