It would be beneficial if we could change/edit the Duration after saving an opportunity or when cloning an opportunity. This would save time and allow us to clone or edit opportunities vs recreating them from scratch.
We post our volunteer opportunities 4 to 6 weeks at a time. Two weeks before that period expires, we post the next 4 to 6 weeks. The projects we're involved with typically run for 9 months, so this posting cycle happens 6 to 8 times during the life of each project. All our opportunities are defined with RECURRING SHIFTS. We have a lot of opportunities running in parallel on this 9 month schedule - typically 30 to 40. Cloning the opportunities every 4 to 6 weeks would be tedious, and the other duration types don't fit our needs as well. We would benefit greatly from an enhancement to edit the definition of a RECURRING SHIFT to allow the Program Manager to EXTEND the END DATE. In our case, the Program Manager would simply add 4 to 6 weeks on to the END DATE.
John I love you idea of being able to add time onto the end date of a recurring shift! That would be incredibly beneficial to me!
Thank you for sharing your use case of this potential duration enhancement! This thorough information gives our developers a better idea of how this enhancement would create an efficiency in the software.
Thank you for supporting John's request and sharing your thoughts on this enhancement.
I am going to add to the enhancement board so our developers can take a look. Again, we appreciate the feedback as it helps us to improve the platform for use by our site managers. Have a wonderful day!
