Description

The way we set up Fundraising campaigns now would make this a useful time saver.

Basically it should just copy all the settings for the current campaign over to another campaign with a new name.

Bumping this, it would save us even more time now there are so many mixin settings that we use in Fundraising campaigns.

@DStrine This is the task I mentioned yesterday. Any chance someone could take a look at it? Seems like it ought to be fairly easy, and would have saved us a couple of hours manual work today

Thanks for the note!

I have moved this back into our analysis column. I'll try to get an estimate. I can't determine priority until then.

The cloned campaign should also have all the same banners already added, correct? (This isn't technically necessary, but would be required to copy Banner Sequence settings properly.)

Sure @AndyRussG, I think it'd be fine to copy added banners along w/ the campaign settings. Awesome to see discussion around this, it'd be a big time saver for us!

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T228575#6237124 for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)

A good first task is a self-contained, non-controversial task with a clear approach. It should be well-described with pointers to help a completely new contributor. Hence removing the good first task tag.
