Quick Tip – Cloning Envelopes with create a copy

Sometimes you have to send the same envelope to the same person and you don’t want to completely recreate the envelope. Other times, you may want to send the same envelope to the same or to a different person with only slight adjustments. Cloning an envelope will let you do both of these and save you time. Also, if your account can’t create and use templates, this is a good way to save time and achieve a similar result.

What is create a copy?

The Create a Copy option clones an envelope to make a copy, which contains all of the same uploaded files, recipients, and signing fields. You can clone any envelope you created that is either in progress, completed, or voided.

Create a Copy is a great time saving feature that allows you to leverage the preparation work you’ve already done. Once you copy an envelope, you can modify any aspect of it. You can add files, change recipients, modify the message, and make changes to the signing fields.
