Is there a way to add action button that makes a copy of current row? I have a table where often it happens that all the data is the same except one field and instead of filling the whole form again it would be much easier to have action to copy it and go to edit immediately.

@Mike_Rundell1 Yes it’s possible. Then you need to create that action with the deep link (LINKTOFORM) help.appsheet.com - Column Type: App (Deep Links) Column Type: App (Deep Links) help.appsheet.com

@Mike_Rundell1, we generally don’t like the idea of copying a row to another sheet. Seems like you’d be setting up a redundant copy of the data. Instead, can’t you use a reference to the same data (so there is only one copy of each “entity” represented in the data)?

Yes we have that option. You can find it under Behavior > Actions > Add new action > Do This > App: Copy this row and edit the copy

@Aleksi_Alkio what about copying to another sheet ?

@Aleksi_Alkio Thanks, it works perfectly for me!
