Add Similar in Views
Would it be possible to have the Add Similar button in Views. 99% of the time I know I want to add Similar and have to first open the record and then press ADD SIMILAR. A little bit frustrating.

Create a Workflow action button and set it to Table View
Have it’s action Create new record (in the same table) and push through the fields you need to duplicate.

Exactly what basenine says to do.. Let me add,
Use the new "navigate" action. It is at the bottom of the Button Actions.

The Navigate button action is a new truly amazing feature. it will let you push values into the new record, (like a standard "create record") but MOST importantly it allows the cancel button to work.

ONE NOTE. The Navigate New record action will not allow you to push files from one record to another. There is a workaround if needed.

As a workaround, I hear what you are saying, but it still means that this has to be coded for each table and then kept in sync with which fields have allowed set for add similar. On the other hand just making a button which already exists at record level available at View level would be so much easier.

Indeed, navigate action is workaround - use Custom URL type with formula:
