Thank you for your post.
If I had a schedule that was password protected, and a user duplicated the schedule, I wouldn't want the password removed from the duplicated schedule.
Can you discuss this a bit more as to why this should change? Perhaps a preferences setting?
Let's take the example of a FileMaker consultant installing a FileMaker solution at a customer's, or now with FMSA 11 a super admin delegating administration rights to group administrators.
In both cases, the 'delegate' has access to the admin console, but may not have full access on the file.
Now, let's say that the solution is designed in a way that relies on server side scripts. The 'super admin' or 'consultant' can set up a scheduled script using his full access account.
But anyone with access to the the schedules can now duplicate it and have it perform another script, even without giving the full access credentials.
Hope I made it more understandable (:unsure:)
PS : about security, this forum authentication system has some major issues. Sometimes it simply breaks, and when it does, it returns the password in the login field. And in readable format, of course.
Thanks for the explanation, and it does provide a little more information. However, I do think if this was changed, there would be a security issue because other people could duplicate the schedule and make previously unauthorized changes.

When entering the suggestion, please give a real-life example with a good explanation to why this should change, or explain that this should be an additional setting for the reasons you laid out. Let Development and Product Management (who read these web entries) discuss the pros and cons of this proposed change.
