You can easily clone any bot inside the Option Alpha autotrading platform, and it only takes a few seconds. The clone feature allows you to replicate an entire bot instantly to efficiently use an existing bot’s basic framework. You can then edit and modify the bot without building a new bot.

To create a clone, choose the bot you want to replicate and select the gear icon to access the dropdown menu. Select “Clone bot.”

This will create a one-time exact replica of the bot, including all of the automations, settings, and custom inputs. You can edit the name, icon, and global settings. When you are ready, select “Clone” at the bottom of the page.

The bot will default to “Off” when cloned. You must manually turn it on to activate the bot.
