When a slot is added to an edition, the contents of that slot are initially empty and it will need to be populated with content. Some of these slots will contain content that is relatively static, modelling an area of your website or app that only changes once per quarter, for example. Rather than having to populate the same slot from scratch each time you add it to a new edition, you can now copy a slot, and its contents, from one edition to another.
A copy of the slot will be added to the edition you chose, including every content item it contains. In the new edition you can then choose to add or delete items from the copied slot, or rearrange the items within it.
In the example below, the "Main sale edition" contains 4 slots, including a "Home Page" slot. This slot contains content promoting a winter collection: 4 images and a grid. We are creating an edition for a November sales promotion and want to keep most of the same content from this slot, but update a few images. To save time, we can copy the slot to the new edition and update its contents.
Choose the event and edition into which to copy the slot- in this case the "Winter promotion" edition within the "Winter sale" event. You will not be able to copy the slot if the target edition already contains the slot or the edition is not in "Draft" mode.
Click "Copy" to copy the slot.
