Copying a community structure

When you want to create a new community, it might be easier to copy an existing community rather than creating one from scratch.

What gets copied?

Copying a community maintains consistency by creating a community with the same layout and structure as the existing community. The following items are copied into the new community:

Description, name, tags, and access settings are copied.

  • Name and description
  • Access settings
  • Tags
  • Moderation settings
  • Apps

    Note: Except for the Rich Text app, app contents are not copied to the new community.

What isn't copied?

Community members, files, app content (wikis or blogs content, for example), and images are not copied to the new community. Settings for apps, such as whether a blog is moderated, are also not copied.

Copying a community structure

  1. From the navigation bar, click Communities.
  2. Click Create a New Community and select Copy an Existing Community.

    Note: If you're in a community that you want to copy, you can also click Community Actions and select Copy Community from the list.

  3. Select a community to copy from the communities you recently visited, or search for a community to copy.

  4. Update the name and description to distinguish your new community from the original. You can also change other details if you want.
  5. Click Save.
