Migrate phone actions to Flic Hub

I will shortly receive my new Flic Hub, but am dreading the fact that I have to now set up all my buttons again and re-create all of the actions against those buttons.

Can I not just transfer all my current buttons configured on my phone and their associated actions directly to the Hub without having to go through the add button to hub setup that seems to be suggested on your how to set up your Hub video?

    Hi! This has been debated in the team a lot, and for now, we haven’t implemented it for one main reason: most actions people use on their phones are phone-specific, such as sending a text message, sharing location, etc. Therefore we can’t switch them over to the hub.
    On the other hand, all functions that are shared between the phone and the hub could be transferred, and we’re thinking of a way to make this migration simple.
    For now, unfortunately, you’ll have to transfer all your Flics manually. Thanks for the feedback, we’ll consider this idea and keep you updated :)

        I second (3rd 4th) this, so many of my Flic buttons are linked to IFTTT and Stringify actions. Could it be as simple as under the Flic settings menu having an option to 'Move to Hub' or 'Move to Phone' so we can chose which ones to migrate?

        Thanks for your response and for trying to get this working for us. I am loving my Hub, and have spent the time transferring all of my light switches over (most of my Flics are single use light switches). This would have saved me time and would be a help for your future users.

        I would love a reply to this idea. I now have my hub, and cannot see an easy way to do this. Is this on the road map, does anyone else see this as a good idea?

        Any idea if you can sort this out? I now have to individually configure 13 Flic buttons with three different actions and for all of the actions I have to configure the hue of the lights the buttons are controlling (which may take many steps per action to get it right).

        Why can I not just transfer the control of the buttons from my phone to my hub (it is all in the same app)?
