After adding actions to a workflow, you can copy or move them to more efficiently create automation. This can be especially useful when building out repetitive actions that need only minor adjustments.

For example, you're building a workflow to create deals based on a contact's location. Instead of creating four Create deal actions individually, you could create one action, then clone it three times and make your adjustments.

  • Next to the action, click Actions.
