Both the items are on our product enhancement list. The option to clone the widget is a priority item, which will be addressed first. We'll keep you posted, once it is available in our service. Please bear with us till then.
We are working on a New Dashboard Layout, as well as, the ability to clone the Widgets without having to recreate them manually. These are in our high priority work items list and can expect to be available very soon.
As soon as these features become available, we will make a public announcement. Do check our What's New page for updates.
