Additional Information

Is there similar Status Report Copy functionality in the Clarity Modern UX?

Per Product Management, at the moment there is not a 'Copy' function in the Modern UX. The 'Publish' button is the only option now to create/copy. In the future we are going to have 'Actions' in Modern that can be defined on different objects. Here is some information on the Publish option:

- Publish Investment Status Reports

• When you publish a status report, it creates a new status report instance and populates its values from the latest prior published status report.
