Creating Items by Cloning Existing Items

When a new Item is very similar to an existing Item, you can create it by cloning the existing Item. By default, the new Item has most of the same properties as the Item being cloned.

To clone an Item, follow these steps:

  1. Search for the existing Item to clone as described in Searching for Items.
  2. Open the Item details dialog for the Item.
  3. Click Clone in the upper left hand corner of the dialog.
  4. A new Item is created. The Item Code is the Item Code of the cloned Item with an asterisk (*) prepended to it. For example, if you clone an Item with the Item Code 1308, the new Item will have Item Code *1308. The Item details dialog switches to show the new Item.
  5. Edit the fields for the new Item as described in Creating New Items and Editing Items.
