Introduction

This guide demonstrates how to make an exact copy of a guide with the guide duplicator.

Requirements

  1. Locate and open the guide you want to duplicate.
    • Locate and open the guide you want to duplicate.

    • The guide ID is found at the end URL of the guide.

    • In this example, the guide ID is 7.

    • The guide ID is also visible in the Introduction of the guide, under the title.

    • ATTENTION: For sites using Version Control, you must first Publish an Initial Release of a guide before the guide can be duplicated.

  2. Once you know the ID of the guide, click on the user menu on the right of the site header.
    • Once you know the ID of the guide, click on the user menu on the right of the site header.

    • To make copies of multiple guides, separate each new Guide ID onto a new line.

    • Prerequisite guides associated with the guide may be retained as steps by selecting the Inline Prerequisite Guides checkbox.

    • Ignore Draft

    • By default, the guide duplicator works with the most recently saved version of the guide, rather than the most recently approved and released version. With this option on, the duplicator will ignore a draft and go for the most recent published version instead.

    • Click on the Duplicate button.

  5. Once your guide is duplicated, the status will display as Success.
    • Once your guide is duplicated, the status will display as Success.

    • To open the duplicate and change its title, click on the link to the New Guide.

How long does it take to duplicate a guide? I’ve tried a few times, with a few different guide numbers, but even after several minutes, I never see it say “Duplicating” or “New Guide.”

Is this only for paid accounts? I am an administrator and I don’t see this option under organization tab
