“Copy To Account (Beta)” feature?

Noticed this new(?) feature in our SB not long ago, Copy To Account (Beta).  After reading up it seems like a really useful feature if it works as advertised.  Has anyone used it and can share any insight, known bugs or issues, etc?  Thanks.

It doesn’t handle dependencies well currently – if it times out/runs forever and a day, odds are you have a dependency missing from the target account.

Aside from that, I’m fairly partial to it  as it is easy to use and reduces re-work – though a proper IDE with the SDF (suite cloud development framework) plugins (that copy to account is a limited version of) is likely a better experience for mass deployments.

It works well (generally) for simple moves, like a field or a script. As Kevin said, it runs into troubles easily when there are many dependencies. For larger moves, I still use SuiteBundler.

Thanks for the input, was hoping it handled larger deployments but had a feeling there may be issues still being in beta.  Will try it out on some complex saved searches and single field moves for now.
