Copy Column and Paste in a different Board

Hi Monday community!

We are standardizing a lot of our board to look and feel the same … (for later quantification)

Anyhow, I find myself recreating the same column (Drop down) each time for different boards and WISH I could COPY the column and PASTE in a different board.

Please consider this update as it would be very helpful! I know that you might think duplicating the board might help, but it’s too much of a work around … I really need to copy one COLUMN and PASTE to others and since it’s a drop down column, it has a lot of options and it’s time consuming to type each time in each board.

Thanks again! Alex

That’s a good idea Alex. Duplication already exists so we’re just missing the “move column to x board”

Great ask indeed. This would save a lot of time, creating the same dropdown column (with 12 items per dropdown in it) over and over. I think your question also will be answered with the suggestion made in this issue; Board types (synching board types and bulk updating)

What would also be great is if you can duplicate one pulse multiple times - so choose how many copies to make! :slight_smile:

It would also be really good if you could just duplicate a pulse without it saying ‘(copy)’ at the end of each pulse and perhaps where you want to duplicate it to like another group or board.

Hey @alejencia, @Krishele, @Eltjo, @hannahrobbins, @dplcharlotte

Thank you so much everyone for sharing your thoughts. I think these are all amazing ideas and love the engagement from everyone on this thread. Please keep this up. :slight_smile:

I will be sure to pass this along to our product team for review. Keep crushing it on the platform.

Just adding a +1 to this as we use dropdowns extensively and having the ability to duplicate would save a lot of time / effort

Hi guys

This is an old request but we did recently change the dropdown column feature so that when you move an item to another board, the options selected under the dropdown will merge with the dropdown column in the board being moved to.

Is this solving what you were all asking for?

Hi @Julia-monday.com,

Not sure. I’d have to test it what you are describing, it may not thou. The bigger picture here is to COPY a column, whatever that may be and paste in another board. I referred to the drop down initially but, the overall function should be that I could copy a status, or a drop down column and paste it in any other board.
Thanks for getting back to us! I’ll report back when I test.

Alex.
