Copy Actions Between Methods

I seem to run into this on a regular basis (not daily, just regularly) where I want to copy my actions from a schedule to an action group or action group to a trigger or whatever and have to painstakingly recreate all my actions in the other method.

It would be nice if there was a button on all these methods to do something like 'Create Action Group From Actions' (a new action group from a bunch of actions in a schedule or trigger) or maybe 'Move Actions to Group'. Also the ability copy actions individually to another method.

It's already on the feature request list. No ETA.

Well, crap, I wanted to be unique and interesting and apparently I am unable to achieve that goal. Homeseer here I come. :lol:

Curious.... when have you or Matt ever given an ETA on a new feature? :shock: :roll:

One time they slipped and said "next release" for a Z-Wave definition, I think. Rumor has it that Durosity had gotten Jay wasted the night before, though, so it isn't likely to slip out again. :-)

I wasn't sure if you were +1 on the request or +1 on Jays response, it was a 50/50 chance. I now see the error of my ways and that Vera should have been what I stated instead of Homeseer. :lol: :lol:

So when they legalize marijuana in Texas then there may be yet another slip as Durosity gets Jay stoned out of his mind? :shock:

We put that last bit there out of habit. Invariably, someone (often times not the OP of the question) will ask "when". Happens almost every time we don't explicitly say we don't know... :P

I bet not. It's gotten pretty mainstream these days. Of course being in Colorado I've just clobbered over the head with that industry for the past decade and hate the reputation we've gotten for it, but Texas is getting less conservative every year, especially in Austin. I give you guys 5 years max until it is legalized.
