Duplicating a process flow


If you need to create a new process flow that's similar to one that already exists, you can duplicate the existing process flow and use this as a starting point for your new design.

The duplicate option is available from process flow settings so you can copy a specific version. When a process flow is duplicated, a copy is added to your list of process flows with the same name, appended with an incremented copy number.

If you are a Patchworks partner/agency, you can duplicate process flows between different company profiles.

Need to know

  • The status of the duplicated flow is always set to disabled.

  • The version of the duplicated flow is always set to draft.

  • Existing labels are duplicated (which means they are created automatically in the receiving company).

  • All shapes are copied but some shapes require reconfiguration in the receiving company - please see our Shape configuration in a duplicated process flow page.
