Copy Sales Forecast

To avoid re-keying a lot of details for similar forecasts, for example, a new year, an existing forecast can be copied to a new forecast.

There is a separate menu option and list view button to Copy Sales Forecast, but whilst entering or amending a forecast, it can also be copied to a new forecast.
