what do you guys think of a duplicate function

Hi Ime,
I think it is a useful function (even though it might not be used frequentl=
y).

Ola has submitted this blue print on Data Elements,
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/dhis2/+spec/data-element-cloning
=0A=0A
I was wondering whether it is worth submitting a similar blue print for Ind=
icators too.
For Indicators, 'Replicate' function is there in DHIS1.4, which basically a=
llow you to create an Indicator by different names, with more or less simil=
ar numerators, denominators and Indicator types.

=0A=0AHi,
=0A
=0AJust a thought about making creating data elements, indicators, categori=
es, etc faster.
=0AWould it be cool to have a new 'create xxx' form that is auto-filled whe=
n we hit duplicate on an existing element/orgunit/category etc
=0A
=0AJust for convenience, especially when one wants to create a hundred thin=
gs with just a small difference btw.
=0A
=0A(As a fall back I'm having to do it with csv and loading up at the backe=
nd, cos its just faster to make so many from a sheet than from the interfac=
e)
=0A
=0AJust a quick thot...
