Feature Request: The ability to move a widget from one dashboard to another, rather than having to go through the widget setup process again.

Thanks for this Ben. We'll look into the possibility of this for the future.

It would also be great to copy a widget from one dashboard to another (not just moving it). That way if one dashboard is formatted for large screen and one for my iPad, I can quickly and easily set up the second dashboard without re-entering all configuration options.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for this. I can definitely see this as a useful addition and it something we are going to look into implementing.

I agree. Even within the same dashboard I have the need to copy something literally 8 or 10 times and just tweak a parameter or two. Thanks for the suggestion, Ben.

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to let you know we've added in the ability to copy widgets to any dashboard (including the one it is on). You'll find the option next to the X on every widget.

I hope it helps you out. Let me know if you have any issues with it.

This doesn't seem to be working right now. Just tried to copy multiple widgets from one to another, only 1 of the 6 copied successfully.
