[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Duplicate a question in forms

Hi there,

I have a request for the ability to duplicate a question on a form. I initially had a form where on the first page you select what deliverable you require, and also select your department and program area from a dropdown. The department and program area mapped to custom assignments and folder locations. However some of the deliverable options don't use the custom assignments, but the majority do need the department and program information, so I have to move those 2 questions to be part of the subsequent relevant pages and remove them from the first page.

Duplicating these 2 questions on 4 other form pages is about a day's work, so I'd really love to see this feature added ;)

Hi Austin, I really like your thinking here, it's an interesting suggestion 👍

I'd like to get a better understanding of your use case however just in case I've slightly misunderstood it.

You're making edits to an existing Request form, and you'd like to move an existing question to a subsequent page without having to re-write it? 

Thanks for posting 🙂

Hi Stephen! That's correct. I want to copy a question with many dropdowns, each selection with custom assignments and folder placements, to another page of the form while retaining all those custom elements. So I can then remove it from the original location without having to manually recreate every question and custom assignments.

That's a logical request Austin. I'll ensure it's brought to the attention of our Product Team and if there are any updates I'll get back to you here. Thanks again for sharing. Happy posting 👍

Yes! I cannot believe this option isn't there. Request forms are not that friendly to create. The UX could be SO much better. You should be able to:
• Duplicate a question and place wherever you want.
• Duplicate an entire page within an existing request form.

I am creating request forms with many dropdown options.

On each of these options I need to add a product pick lists - these are around 50 strong.

If you I could duplicate a question then I wouldn't have to spend almost a day copying each product into the new request.

And yes I know if I made the product list on a single page and link to that page I could solve this but for various reasons I can't do that.  So the ability to duplicate a question would be a very good product enhancement.

This would be a great option for our team because currently we are copying sections of a form manually. I know you can duplicate the entire form, but it would be nice to be able to duplicate questions on a form and move them to other pages.

This would be an AMAZING feature! I have wasted so much time having to copy my dropdown questions by hand 😕

This is such a good idea, (and would personally save me time too) and the Product Team agrees. They're currently working on other enhancements right now, so this is on the Backburner and the team will look into this at a later stage and I'll keep you updated here 👍

I desperately need this too! It takes so long to create forms! Often times we ask up front how many deliverables but then need to ask the same questions regarding each deliverable- so i have to create a new page and build out the questions for 1 deliverable, then another page and built out the same exact questions for 2 deliverables... so on and so forth and often times we are doing 10+ deliverables.

Hello everyone, unfortunately, the status for this suggestion remains as Backburner for the time being.
 
To explain a little further, the Product team looks at a wide range of data, user feedback, and Community suggestions/votes to determine what next to work on. The team always aims to focus on implementing the functionality that will have the widest impact and benefit for the most users, and it's for this reason, that we simply can't implement all of the suggestions we receive via our various feedback channels. There is more detail in this Community post on how we work with Product Feedback.
 
I understand that this might be disappointing, but rest assured that your input has been shared with the team and that if there are any changes, I'll be sure to let you know.

Disappointing to see the last post - this would be a HUGE help. I have spent hours updating a form, having to manually replicate pages, questions, and lists of dropdown selections throughout the form in order for them to dynamically populate project templates.

I agree with Laura Walz on this issue. It is incredibly time consuming updated request forms, which we use daily at my organization. I'd love to see the backend of these forms become more Wrike user friendly. It doesn't seem like this would take a lot of time to develop for a great end product for those of us maintaining request forms for our organizations.

Workfront calls this a question library, and I'd love to see that functionality in Wrike.
