Copy a document as a new document, discussion, or blog post. You can also use this
feature to create templates from existing documents.
Copying documents streamlines quite a few use cases, such as the following:
Copy documents to different places if you want to push out a clean version and
empty comments. This is great for posting release communications to different
audiences, such as customers and partners.
Use a document as a template that can then be used again and again to easily
recreate documents. This is useful for processes in a company, or templates with agencies.
Work privately with your team and then push out a clean copy to the Support
Center or even as a blog post to the News stream.
Use ghost blogging where the ghostwriter authors the initial version. The
publishing author does a copy-document on the initial version to publish it
under their name.
Go to a document you can edit. You must be able to edit the document you want
Click Actions > Create a Copy in the actions menu, and then select whether you want to copy the
document into another document, discussion, or blog post. You may not see one or
more of these options if the place where the original document is stored does
not support them, or you don't have permission to publish a particular content
type there (for example, blog posts).
Click Create a Copy.
Edit the new item. Note that the title, body, and tags have all been pulled in
from the original document. You can edit all of these, as well as change the
place for the content before publishing.
