Feature or Omission: Workspace Save as New does not create Sights (Resolved)

While the 63 of the 66 objects showed up when I performed the operation. The three Sights did not.

I refreshed. Still not there.

Went to lunch and came back to find they were now in the new workspace with the Last Update the same as the rest of the them.


Now you are just messing with me.


(I'm aware that Sights will not come over if the Account can not own them. I tested in two accounts with same results. I assume the same is true for Reports if the Acccount can not own those, but don't have access to an account without them anymore)



Is this a bug, missed requirement, or a feature?


When performing the Save as New process on a Workspace, Sights are not transferred.

I assume this is an omission when Sights were implemented.


In that case, I would like to submit a Feature Request for this functionality.


If it is a design decision, I'd appreciate a hint at why this feature was omitted.


Many customer use the Save as New workspace for their project management sheets and reports. Having the Sights available also only makes sense.
