Need Task Copy, Cut and Paste capability


Level 3


When trying to organize tasks in a large project, there needs to be traditional cut, copy, & paste options. Currently, the only way to move a task is by drag & drop. This is very time consuming when many tasks need to be moved and when the destination is outside of the scroll view. In order to move tasks around, you have to expand the destination, find the tasks, highlight all the tasks, drag from a position where there is no selection visible (or it will think it's dragging onto itself and not scroll the table). Then you have to slowly wait while the browser scrolls the view. At the end, I have to make sure I point at the correct location to drop it right or it'll start autocalculating and shifting and such, which can also mess up my ordering, especially if it gets dropped in the wrong task and it takes it as subtasks.
