I find myself creating the same rules and dashboards over and over again. Is it possible to get a “clone” function implemented in at least Rule Machine, Motion Lighting and Dashboards so that a new rule/dashboard can easily be created by just cloning an existing one?
The clone feature I’m thinking of would be an exact clone of the original rule. Same devices as the original rule, same conditions, same settings etc. I could then easily change the cloned rule to use another device, or whatever it might be that I would have to change in the cloned rule. And this would ideally be incorporated across all built in apps in HE, not just RM.
This is on our to-do list. But we don't have a date for it yet.
Thanks for that!
Dumb question from a newbe...
How can I tell when you have a new release?
Thanks for the quick response to both of you.
You can clone dashboards very easy by copying the layout of one to another in the gear, advanced, layout.
any update on this?
You can clone rules in RM4, and a method to clone dashboards is described above ...
Talk about a thread rising from the dead . . .
thanks both. I'm just getting my sea legs here. Coming over from smartthings where I think this kind of comment would have just been ignored
The dangers of commenting on a very old thread! Welcome aboard!
Because nobody actually laid it out, in the spirit of this community, and for posterity, I'll just add that theres a "Select a Rule to Clone" option when you're making a new rule
Thank you! This wasn't obvious - though I guess now that I see it, it is.
