Duplicate documents within a library

In an AODocs library, you can duplicate (copy) a document with its properties, attachments, relations, description and permissions. Only the last version of a document is duplicated with the same version name and description. The workflow state is reset in the copied document.

You can copy documents if you are:

  • allowed to create a document in the document class
  • reader or contributor on the document
  • contributor on the parent folder if the permissions are inherited from folders
  • contributor on the document class permissions

1. Open the document you want to copy.

3. When the copy is complete, a message appears at the bottom of the screen. Press Open copied document

The copied document is named Copy of [Name of original document]. 
The properties, attachments, relations, descriptions and permissions are copied from the original file. Press the Edit button to modify them. 
The workflow state is reset. 
Only the last version of a document is copied with the same version name and description.

Note: The attachments of the copied document are copies of the original attachment, so have different URLs even though they have the same name.
