Hello! I'm needing a helpful tip or if it is not currently a function of the software, then consider this a request.

We have embraced the use of Groups in Proclaim. It is especially useful for Liturgical elements in the worship service. What is missing in our use of this is the ability to reuse entire groups. If the feature is there, I'm unable to find it.

Example: At our church, we celebrate the Lord's Supper on 2nd and 4th Sundays. We utilize a separate group called "The Lord's Supper" because we use some Scripture verses (and other special items) to teach on it each time we celebrate it.

How cool would it be to be able to hit CTRL-SHIFT-R and be able to toggle Groups in the Reuse box and be able to select "The Lord's Supper" group and then BAM! It fills in the 7 items we use. Currently I select them one at a time and then recreate the group each time.

So if I'm missing something, lemme know! If this not yet in the software, know there are some folks in Branson, MO who would love to see it happen! Smile

In the meantime, please know we love Proclaim and consider it a valuable tool in our proclamation of the Gospel!!  Thank you!!

This is not currently a function in the Reuse items popup, but sounds like a great idea - I'll bring it up with the other developers - Thanks!

You should be able to open the older presentation, select the group, right click, copy, then open your new presentation and paste. If this doesn't copy the group, it should at least let you copy all the items, then you could group them afterwards. Not as easy a Reuse Items, but thats how I would accomplish this with what we have in the application today.
