Copying Flow steps for reuse or editing

Hi All,

 

I am trying to figure out if I can copy a branch in a flow to re-use it and searching the KB for things related to copying yields a lot of results on using flows to copy items, but little on Copying parts of flows for re-use.

 

I have a flow with multiple parallel paths.  In each Parallel path, I am doing an update item based on a conditional check.  I would like to the parallel path so that I can 1) reuse it another flow and 2) add it to this flow and just edit a couple of parameters rather than build it from scratch everytime I need it.

 

There is a "copy" function that copies to the clipboard, but I can't find anywhere that talks about what this means or if it can be pasted elsewhere.

 

Is it even possible to copy a flow step and re-use it?

 

Many thanks,

 

MattH2

Re: Copying Flow steps for reuse or editing

AS YOu mentioned you can copy a Flow step to your clipboard.  When you want to enter a new action you will see that there is a category tab called my clipboard.  Any actions you have copied to your clipboard will be there and you can use them like any other action.

Pstork1 -- I think you are my hero -- although I am slightly embarrassed by my inability find these things on my own.
