Hello everyone,

I am writing to propose an improvement in the process of cloning data between cycles in Arena.

Currently, when we clone a record from one cycle to another, all the attributes are copied, and in many cases, we only want to copy some of them and others that appear blank (for example in a forest inventory, the location data of the plot are maintained between cycles but we measure the tree data again).

For this reason, I think it would be a good idea to include in the attribute edits the option of whether we want that attribute to be cloned or not.

Thanks for the excellent work with the Open Foris tools!!

Dear Oscar,
This is a very good idea and we will implement it soon in Arena.
Would you like to have some new features in the mobile too, related to multiple cycle surveys?
For example, would you like to have the possibility to start a new record in the current cycle, cloning data from a record in the previous cycle, direcly in the mobile app?
Please let us know, this is something that could be useful for other users too.
Many thanks,
Open Foris Team

Dear Open Foris team,

Thanks for implementing these ideas.

It would be very useful about the new features of the mobile app to be able to download records from the server and copy them to a new cycle or edit them directly.

Thank you
