we have work and add job scheduled entries but, can we also have a copy job scheduled entry? Sometimes you need to add a job scheduled entry and just change a script that is going to run. For example,

First job scheduled entry
SBMJOB CMD(QSYS/RUNSQLSTM SRCSTMF('/qibm/userdata/SQLs to Run/monitorMirusJobs.sql')) JOB(MONMIR) JOBD(*USRPRF) CCSID(37)

Second job scheduled entry

Its quicker to do a copy command than an add because everything would be the same and its up the user to change the command that will be executed.

    While I agree this is a nice to have usability enhancement, it's unlikely that it would have enough priority to be done in the next release. But I'll keep it in the list for a while in case there is a chance of fitting it in.

    The CAAC has reviewed this IBM Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority Idea that should be addressed.

    For those that still depend on the power of CL, this command is needed.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual IBM Ideas on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your Idea.
