Shortcuts action to duplicate an item in DTTG

I want to duplicate an item in DTTG using shortcuts. The info for the Move Item action suggests that it can be used to move, replicate, or duplicate an item.

However there are no parameters to select the specific mode - move, replicate, or duplicate - after adding the action to shortcuts.

I can use the action successfully to move items.

I tried moving an item within the same group - thinking that might duplicate - but then I get the following error:

Could not run move item
an unknown error occurred 

Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

Tap Move in the shortcut action.


Thank you

With a great idea to invoke x-callback by @sven.luetkemeier I managed to setup a shortcut that can alter a record by using split screen. That way, you don’t have to hard code the UUID in your shortcut, which might defeat the purpose of it, depending on your situation of course.

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

Thanks @Solar-Glare for the pointer, I’ll check it out.

Be aware that invoking the x-callback by starting a shortcut on the share sheet required me to restart the device, as sharing from the share sheet became problematic. Using split screen didn’t though.
