Cloning from Template

Cloning a bot from a template allows you to use a template to easily create a new bot and modify its settings.

Creating a clone of a bot from a template is just as easy as cloning an existing bot. 

When you create a clone from a template, you're taking all of the information, automations, settings, and inputs from the saved template and creating a new bot. You can create multiple clones from a template because it simply reuses the same information over and over.

To create a clone from an existing template, access your template library, choose the template you want to clone, and select “Clone” at the top of the page.

You can edit the name, icon, account, and global settings of the new bot. When you are ready, select “Clone” at the bottom of the page.

Clone settings

A new bot is created from an existing template in the library. All of the automations and settings will automatically be transferred to the new cloned bot.
