Clone Record Function

Author Name: White Space

Very often we get a request to copy a record where they want to create a copy of an existing data and update some info. This is useful to avoid redoing the data entry. Sadly there is no OOB feature to do this.

The keywords here are "copy" and "record". You can "Save As" a view; changing that phrase to "Copy" would help my end-users (when it comes to views). When it comes to records, the assumption, it seems, is that users will go to the Account to create a Contacts and the data will map over. This isn't 100% the case or accurate.

And there should also be an option to "deep clone", creating copies of all child records as well.
