🎛️Duplicating a Collection

Duplicate a collection while maintaining the sort order of the original collection.

Collection Duplication

The duplication feature allows you to create a new collection from an existing one, and ensures that the sort order of the new collection is the same as the original one.

Step 1 - Select a collection to duplicate

Choose either a Smart or Custom collection to duplicate.

Step 2 - Click the Duplicate icon on the collection you want to select

Step 3 - Enter the details of the new collection

Enter a title for the new collection and choose a sort order.

If you choose Manual sorting for the new collection, the order of the products in the new collection will match the sort order of the original collection, if the original one was also set to Manual sorting.

Step 4 - Confirm the duplication

Finally, click the Next... button, and confirm your request to duplicate the collection.

After a few minutes, you'll see a message on the screen to tell you that the new collection is ready. Hit the Refresh button on the collection list screen to see the newly created collection.

That's it, you're done!

You can now select the new collection.

Keep in mind that the products in the new collection are technically the same as the ones in the old collection. This means that if you change any product information in the new collection, it will change in the old one as well since it's the same products.

If you want to create true copies of the products, just let us know and we'll explain how to do that. We like to discuss it before we enable that feature to avoid any unexpected surprises.
