How can I copy objects in the seventhings app?

If you would like to use the app to add a new object that should be filled with similar or the same data as an object that has already been added, you can simply copy its values.


Especially when adding objects of which you have several of the same type, you can save a lot of time using the copy function. For example, you don't have to add each chair individually.
