Copy entire proejct to modify it

Hi all,

I want to copy a process and later, I just want to modify it.

Is there any best practise you would like to share with me? Thank you :slight_smile:

–> I did it so far like that:

  1. Create a new project
  2. Create the new sequence, flowchart (whatever you need to copy from the old project)
  3. Copy the content from the old xaml to the new one in the new project
  4. Adjust all arguments and some of the variables

Best regards

Hi SimonLenz,
As per my understanding, you want to use the .xaml file which is already created and use that workflow content in your new project.
The best way of doing this:
If you are creating a new project and you want to use only one or couple of .xaml files from previous one, you can just copy those files and put it in your new project folder. If you are doing modifications to the existing project, you can just open the previous project and do modifications accordingly instead of creating the whole new one again. Copying all the (activities) content from old .xaml file is little confusing and some times there are changes you miss some activities if you are not copying correctly.

Hope this helps…



If you copy the process (i.e Sequence\Flowchart) it wont copy the arguments, so you can do one thing.
Right-click on the sequence you need to re-use, and click export to workflow and later you can call this in your new process


Pardon my frankness and excuse me if I’m overlooking something, but why isn’t there a basic “Save as” functionality that allows you to quickly and easily save a copy of the entire project? Pretty much every other program in existence has this basic functionality. Why does this need to be so complicated a task?
