Published on Feb 28th, 2024

In a world of increasing automation, tools like Zapier have become indispensable. Zapier simplifies the automation of tasks between different web applications, saving individuals and businesses countless hours of manual labor. One often needed, yet sometimes confusing task is duplicating a Zap. Duplicating a Zap can be essential when creating a similar workflow or for backup purposes. In this guide, we will walk you through the easy steps to duplicate a Zap in Zapier.

Step 1: Log in to Your Zapier Account
To start duplicating your Zaps, log into your Zapier account. Once logged in, you'll be greeted with your dashboard showing a list of your Zaps.

Step 2: Find the Zap You Want to Duplicate
Navigate through your list of Zaps and identify the one you wish to copy. If you have a substantial number of Zaps, you can use the search feature to quickly find what you're looking for.

Step 3: Access Zap Options
Hover your cursor over the Zap you want to duplicate to reveal additional options. Look for the 'Edit' button - a smaller button with a gear icon usually located to the right of your Zap's 'ON/OFF' toggle.

Step 4: Copy Your Zap
After clicking the 'Edit' button, you will be taken to the Zap's edit page. On the upper right corner, you should see an option to Copy Zap. Click this, and Zapier will create an identical copy of your Zap.

Step 5: Edit Your New Zap (Optional)
Once your Zap is duplicated, you may wish to modify it. You can edit the name to differentiate it from the original or tweak any of the steps. Remember to turn on your new Zap if you wish to make it active immediately.

Step 6: Organize Your Zaps
To keep your Zaps well-organized, consider renaming your duplicated Zap or adding it to a folder within Zapier for easy access and to maintain a streamlined workflow.

Duplicating a Zap in Zapier is a simple and quick process. By following these steps, you can effortlessly create a backup of your existing Zap or use it as a starting point for a new automation workflow. This allows you to increase productivity without rebuilding complex Zaps from scratch.
