Copy a document as a new document, discussion, or blog post. You can also use this feature to create templates from existing documents(Creating a Template from a Document).


  1. Go to a document you can edit. You must be able to edit the document you want to copy.
  2. Create a copy of a documentClick Create a Copy and then select whether you want to copy the document into another document, discussion, or blog post. You may not see one or more of these options if the place where the original document is stored does not support them, or you don't have permission to publish a particular content type there (i.e., blog posts).
  3. Click Create a Copy.
  4. Edit the new item. The title, body, and tags have also copied from the original document. You can edit all of these, as well as change the place for the content before publishing.
  5. When you're finished editing, click Publish.











PLEASE NOTE: The Document content type is designed to be a collaborative document by nature. Anyone with the Create permission on Documents will also have editing permissions. This means when you create a document, other users will have access to edit your document unless you choose the option to restrict authors at the bottom of the page, before publishing.
