Reports - Clone Pivots for Faster Report Building

When i'm building a report with multiple pivots, I should be able to "clone" an existing pivots highlights/chart/column snapshot settings to the next pivot so that then I can just make filter tweaks to that tab if that is the only thing that is changing. 

I'm building a report with 7 pivots and the only change between them is a different impacted systems filter for each tab so i'm having to rebuild each highlight and set all 12 columns and the chart up on EVERY pivot which is really wasteful when a simple "save pivot as new" type functionality would work.  This functionality exists when creating new views etc so it should exist for pivots within reports.

I agree this functionality should be added to the Clarizen development road-map.   It would be a great time saver for me personally.  Many times I create multi tab reports that are simple changes to filters but the report and chart are the same and each time requires manual adjustments.

Hello, 

That's precisely the function I was looking for. So I assume this is not available yet, right?

If not available, you can add me to this feature request.

 

Thanks,

Armand

This would save an enormous amount of time when building reports.

I'm surprised that this is not yet a thing (actually, I thought I saw something in Clarizen's documentation implying that it is). I would imagine that a great many pivot reports in Clarizen use the same column set with different filters and/or groupings.

Please add me to the list of 'do want' customers.

Make sure you hit the UP ARROW in the original post, so the VOTE keeps going up. I think they ignore FEEDBACK under 100, so get your entire team to log in and VOTE... :P
