    I note the ‘duplicate record’ function – is it possible to paste or move a record to another form? If not, is this something you would consider for a future update?

    Perhaps this may be possible in a future update. But the structure of the form you want to move the record to must be an exact match with the source form. But if there were differences in the form structure then it wouldn’t be a good user experience as it would probably have to merge the two structures together and that could get confusing for the user.

    Generally I’ve found that when someone wants to move a record from one form to another it’s because they aren’t using the Group By function to group records with a similar value together. For example, if you had a list of movies you were keeping track of in two forms, one for DVDs and one for BluRays, then instead of having two forms, you could have one form with a “Format” field which you could group by. Then all your DVDs would be grouped together and all your BluRays would be grouped together.
