Description

Here's the current process for adding five parameters to a complex template:

  1. Scroll all the way down.
  2. Click on 'Add more information'
  3. Click on 'Show 50 more fields'
  4. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  5. Scroll all the way down.
  6. Click on 'Add more information'
  7. Click on 'Show 49 more fields'
  8. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  9. Scroll all the way down.
  10. Click on 'Add more information'
  11. Click on 'Show 48 more fields'
  12. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  13. Scroll all the way down.
  14. Click on 'Add more information'
  15. Click on 'Show 47 more fields'
  16. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  17. Scroll all the way down.
  18. Click on 'Add more information'
  19. Click on 'Show 46 more fields'
  20. Click on the parameter I want to add.

Here's the process that I want:

  1. Scroll all the way down.
  2. Click on 'Add more information'
  3. Click on 'Show 50 more fields'
  4. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  5. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  6. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  7. Click on the parameter I want to add.
  8. Click on the parameter I want to add.

If you need to have it jump up to the top after clicking on the parameters (to reassure people that it worked), then that's okay. But I definitely want the "Click on 'Add more information'" and "Click on 'Show 50 more fields'" to be once-per-template steps instead of once-per-parameter steps.
