Duplicate A Group
Duplicating a Group can be a handy tool if you want to duplicate all the settings and amazing Automated Workflow you've created to re-use for a different purpose.
Note that duplicating the Group will only duplicate the settings and Workflow. The members of the duplicated group will not be copied into the new Group.
To duplicate a Group, click on the Groups section and then select the Group that you would like to duplicate.
Then click on the duplicate icon in the top right corner.
You will be redirected to create the new duplicate Group. Remember, you cannot have the same Keyword for both Groups, so you will want to update that along with the other details.
Don't forget to hit the blue "Create Group" button when you are done!
Delete and Restore a Group
To delete a Group, first, click on the Groups section and then click on the Group you wish to delete.
From there you can click on the little trash can icon in the top right corner to delete the Group.
Anyone in a deleted Group will remain in the People section. Here are instructions on how to delete a person.
Deleting a Group is reversible!
