- Duplicate the structure, content, and the updates written in any of the board's items.

Duplicate the structure
If you choose the first option, "Structure only", only the skeleton of the board (the group names, column types and names, etc.) will be duplicated. This will not include the items or column data within the board.

This functionality allows you to duplicate the content of your board with all the updates and files. Keep in mind a few points to take into account:
- Read only mode
The updates in the duplicate board will be in read only mode. This means that they cannot be modified or deleted. You also cannot like the duplicate update or reply to it.
- The entire post will be copied
This means that the update will be copied with its assets and the replies. If your update includes a checklist, your checklist will also be copied. Your checklist will be duplicated exactly as it is on the original post. This means that if one item is marked as done, it will be marked as done in the duplicate.
The latest 100 posts of each item will be duplicated.
Duplicating a board with integrations
When duplicating a board containing one or more integrations, the integrations will appear as inactive on the duplicated board and they must be manually reactivated in order for them to work properly. Below, we'll show you how to reactivate your integrations on a newly duplicated board to get them working again in no time! ⬇️
Firstly, if you duplicate a board which has an active integration on it, you will see a blue pop-up appear on the duplicated board to notify you of this on the newly duplicated board! From here, all you have to do is click on "Activate", as shown below.
Once you click on "Activate", you'll be redirected to the Integrations Center. From here, all you have to do is click on "Activate" once again on the right side of each integration recipe in order to activate them on your newly duplicated board!
