Feature Cloning: Copy Content From One Guide to Another


With our clone tools, you can quickly and easily copy content from one guide into another. We understand some of your information might not change year-over-year, and you don't need to reinvent the wheel! 

In this article, we will cover:

Cloning an entire guide:

Note: Guide cloning will soon be replaced by the tool to copy all features.

If you would like to copy the menu item structure as well as your content from a previous guide, you can clone the entire guide. 

In Builder, open the guide dashboard. Click on "Advanced Tools" at the top, and then click "Clone guide". 


This process may take a few minutes, depending on the complexity of your guide. Builder will send you an email when the cloned guide is available. 

Please Note: Cloning a guide transfers all data except schedule sessions, tracks, forms, and photo album images. If you want to carry over the schedule, please refer to the next section of this article, below.


Copy features in a guide:

If you would prefer to copy some of the features from one guide to another, this tool is for you!

Please keep in mind:

  1. You can copy features from one source guide into up to three destination guides at once.

  2. Folders, pinned items, links, surveys, and guide details are not available for copying. 

  3. Guides can only have one Maps module, only one Schedule module, and only one General Info module. If you wish to copy these features between guides, please delete the feature from the destination guide first. If you try to copy maps into a guide that already has maps, you will receive an error email.

  4. When copying features from a source guide to a destination guide, any existing corresponding features in the destination guide will be overwritten. Ensure there is nothing you need to keep in the destination guide before proceeding.

  5. The data in features will copy over, but the data is not connected between guides. That is, editing content in one guide will not sync to impact the copied elements in the other guide. 

Got it! So how do I copy features? 

In Builder, open the guide dashboard for the source guide. This is the guide we want to copy features FROM.

Click "Advanced Tools" at the top of the screen and then click "Copy features". 


You will then have the option to copy some or all of the features from your current guide.


Copy some features:

Click "Select features" to choose the components of your source guide you would like to copy.

Then select the destination guide(s) who should receive these features. 


Copy all features:

Click "copy all features over" if you would prefer to bring over everything! Select your destination guide(s).
