Did you mean: 

Our Jobs & Projects are identical in structure with regards Airtable views. I create a section view with 4 / 5 separate views all predefined.

When a new job comes up, I create a new section, then duplicate each view, then rename each view, then alter each filter according to the job number.

In addition to “Duplicate View”, can we have a “Duplicate Section and all views in it” please?

Thanks in advance.

That sounds pretty tedious. You may want to just create one set of views which are filtered to show all your active projects, but group the records by project/job. You can expand & collapse the groups as needed, and the expand/collapse state will amazingly be remembered for each user — a nifty undocumented trick in Airtable that isn’t mentioned anywhere!
