Clone / Copy a Case

I saw that this was a common feature request searching the archives but I don't see it ever being resolved.  Is there a way to do this in the On-demand version versus the VB script option?

Did this make it into FB 7?

(I have been asking for this one for.... a few years now...)

This is easily doable via a plug-in.  We just haven't had time. I've done something similar with a bookmarklet generator here. I use a version of this internally, have just made this external.

It uses JQuery and the API to read your FogBugz install and allow you to set various aspects of the case. If you don't set any of the dropdowns, it just acts as a clone case link.

Right now, estimate, due date, and any custom or extra fields are not cloned.  I'll fix this at some point.  Let me know if the directions are unclear or if you find bugs.

When you use the bookmarklets generated by this (in FireFox or Chrome), if you have selected text, it puts that in as part of the new case.

There is no database behind this, no information whatsoever is stored by us.
