Option to copy folder properties or bulk edit folder propeties in CMS

We have run into an issue with the copy button in Convio CMS. Currently you can copy items and folders with subfolders, however once you do, they lose their assigned properties such as assigned content types meaning you must reset the properties for those folders once they have been copied by hand. This is very time consuming and adds extra steps and manual work that should be done automatically. When you select the copy button, in my opinion you expect the folders and items to be copied exactly, including the properties you have assigned them. Say for instance I have 10 folders and want to recreate this structure elsewhere on a site. These 10 folders each have two subfolders, for example an image and assets folder. If I copy these 10 folders, I now have to reset the properties of those 10 folders and their subfolders. This is 30 folders in total. So I have to set all the image folders to only allow image content types, assets can only have asset related content types and my main folder to whatever content type is suppose to go there. Either there should be a checkbox to tell the copy button to copy folder properties along with the items you are copying or the ability to select multiple folders, (e.g. select all image subfolders) and assign the image content type to those folders, removing all other content types from those selected folders. I believe this functionality should exist already but seeing as it doesn't it would be a great feature to have. I find that Convio CMS could really benefit from more "bulk" manage features.
