How can we improve Ares?

Remove Date Needed By when cloning/importing

When cloning requests in the client and importing from the web, the Date Needed By clones along with citation information. However, this date is useless since it is from a prior semester; moreover, it causes problems when calculating the number of requests filled by the instructor's Date Needed By (an important metric for assessing service). This date should not clone/import with the rest of the information. Or at the very least, institutions should be able to choose whether this clones (or not).

    This change has caused problems for us, as we actually need the contents of the "Needed By" field to be carried over from one semester to the next when an item is cloned. Can this field be set so that the user can determine whether they want the "Needed By" field to be copied when a course is cloned, or not? Similar to the way you can opt to copy over tags or not.

    if it causes a problem that means that the formula for the equation has been altered or the code is set up in a way to do not the job specified....based on the reading and my background with my studies BSIT from #CTU
