Copying cards and substasks

Is it possible to copy cards and subtasks in the card view and have the new lines generated in grid view?  Make sense?

Im trying to copy all subtasks for a new card but just have the user update the main task name.

    There isn't currently a way to duplicate a card while in Card View but you can switch back to Grid view and copy the row that represents the card you'd like to copy. Then you can paste that row elsewhere in the sheet and it will create a duplicate card. You can learn how to copy paste in Smartsheet here: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/518318-using-copy-paste

    Please submit an enhancement request for the ability to copy or duplicate a card in Card View  here so it can be considered by our development team for future implementations.

  • +1 for this. Seems like a pretty simple no brainer. You can copy to another sheet but can't copy a card to duplicate it in the same sheet.

  • Any update here? This is a basic feature for agile project management. Switching between views and copying template subtasks is inconvenient, especially when working with a large number of cards.
