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.


2. Open the More actions menu and select Duplicate.


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

In the copied document:

  • the name is Copy of [Name of original document] 
  • the properties, attachments, relations, descriptions and permissions are copied from the original document – you can 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.
