      In many cases, instructors want to create multiple gradebook items that all have the same settings (e.g., same point value, category, release settings), just with a slightly different title.

      Example use cases:

      • An instructor wants to mark attendance Gradebook so she doesn't have to keep a separate record of it in a spreadsheet or elsewhere, assigning 1 point per class session. Depending on how many days a week the class is held (some are 5 days a week!), the instructor might need to create a huge number of 1-point items in an Attendance category.
      • There are 13 assignments, one for each week of class, and the lowest assignment grade is dropped. All grades have to have the same total point value/weight. Obviously, they all have to go in the same drop/keep category to drop the lowest grade.

      Feature Request: To make this process easier, it would be nice if one or both of the following options were available:

      1. A Bulk Create option, where you enter a title and other settings for the item, and have a box to enter how many copies you want to create. Multiple instances of the item are created, each with a number appended on the end (e.g. - 1, - 2, etc.) Basically, the same functionality as Auto Groups.
      2. A Duplicate option, to mirror the similar option in Assignments or Tests & Quizzes; however, it would be better to use the - 1, - 2 nomenclature and NOT create each copy as "Copy #1, Copy #2" or similar. Again, you would be creating new copies of the GB item with the same settings.
