The ability to copy routines
Please give the ability to copy routines in the same screen where you can delete/play routine.
This is needed because the current grouping mechanism only allows for on/off functionality in routines. Which means every device needs to be on the routine individually if you want anything more than simple on/off. I have 17 lines just for basic lighting and replicating that info is very labor intensive and time consuming.
Having the ability to copy routines, adjust parameters, and save as new name/time would save me tons of time as I grow my smart home.....or give us the ability to control more than simple on/off in groups (which I know would probably require significantly higher amounts of dev work).

I would like to be able to export them also so that I can import them on my parents devices.

Would be a huge improvement.

Just had rotator cuff surgery
I have a cryo cuff for ice therapy
Using routine helps cycle it on and off. copy/paste of the commands would be useful in setting up multiple cycles.

why hasn't this been done yet?
Brian O'Conaill commented
100% agree. We’d like to be able to say turn off lamps/turn off lights/bedtime/upstairs lights off which are all variations on one routine, without creating a new routine for each one
Matthew R. Parish commented
Yes, I'd really like to see this added of routines are not going to be improved to allow more Boolean logic. Please add either one, preferably the latter.
Eric Langlais commented
I was looking for the option to copy routines so I wouldn't have to start from scratch for minor differences between each. Please add this!
David K Stall commented
I had fully expected that this was already coded.
It is made even more crucial as you can't repeat on more than one day without taking the entire week or weekend.
Phil Ludlow commented
+1 This would be excellent for using Echo buttons, which currently need their own routine setup, so to mirror a voice command of ‘good morning’, need to setup again from scratch. Alternatively, the ability to call a routine from a routine would be great (a sub routine!)

I agree, add 1) the ability to copy a routine and 2) allow day schedule for a routine to run. This is especially nice to get some variety in playlists...
Julien Feltes commented
Clayton C. Johnsen, you're so right. I have exactly the same problem with different time at different days. Please add this function Amazon.
Gina Nicole Greenway commented
I agree with the comment that it would be great to select routines for just certain days.
At the very least — copying really complicated routines and just needing to change the time would be great!
Clayton C. Johnsen commented
Especially with morning and evening routines, as a college student with MWF and TTH courses at different times, it would make it much easier to have a copy OR duplicate routine. However, it would be much better to be able to select multiple days instead of just one.
