Replicating Existing Product Details to New Product

Is there a way in CMSB to automatically replicate some of the field data from an existing product into the entry for a second product, such as when two products are similar in certain areas.

For example, let's say my two products are Ferrari cars, albeit with many similar specs except a few exceptions. I don't want to have to manually copy and paste lots of repetitive details fromĀ  Ferrari A into Ferrari B (e.g. engine size, website link, logo etc.), so it would be great if I could link the repetitive data fields between multiple products to save on data entry time.

Hi Mark,

Would the "Save & Copy Button" plugin suit your needs? It will create a duplicate record, then you can modify the fields that have different specs.

Not sure. Does that plugin record and reflect changes when the original source field is updated?
