Unable to continue deploying from a release page

When I deploy a release to our Test environment I used to be able to click a button "Promote to UAT" so I can continue deploying the release to the next environment.

Now that button is gone and I need to jump through hoops to deploy to UAT.

Could that button please be re-added?

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for getting in touch! What version of Octopus are you on? I just checked the latest version and you can deploy directly from the task log to the next environment. Have a look at the attached screenshot.

    Hi Pawel,

    Sorry for the late reply but I came across the issue again today.

    It's on the release screen. So if you click on the dashboard on a release before it would give you an option to re-deploy or continue deploying (even when the version in the next environment is the same as the previous environment).

    We would sometimes re-deploy a package but now that's quite hard to do.

    Hi Roger,

    That's not a problem. Can you take a screenshot of a screen in the old portal (you can still access it by appending /oldportal to the main url, e.g. https://demo.octopus.com/oldportal where we show the Re-deploy action. I'm struggling to find it.

    Also, I'm not sure whether you've noticed but we have now an overflow menu (three vertical dots, check the screenshot for details) on the task details page. There is an action there called Deploy To. Would that be something that can help you here?

    Hi Pawel,

    Thanks for that. I just realised that we fixed a bug in this area in yesterday release (https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/4131). Can you upgrade to the latest version and see whether you still experience this problem?
