Duplicating Projects


The Duplicate Project feature allows you to create a new project from an existing one. It is similar to cloning a project, but allows you to include the file configurations from the source project in the new project.

  • This feature is only available for Word and Excel questionnaires (.doc, .docx, .xls and .xlsx).
  • The source project must have a single source file, or one Word file and one Excel file.

You want to create a new project from an existing project when the source files are identical, or nearly identical, saving a lot of time by copying previously completed work. You want the project team to copy the majority of the work from a previous project, and only spend time completing the unfilled parts.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.

  • Duplicating Projects

    1. Access the project menu from the Projects page, the Sections page, or an exported package and select Duplicate Project from the menu.
    2. Enter the name of the new project and select Choose File.
    3. Upload the file from the source project.
    4. Change any of the project details as necessary, and then click Duplicate.
      You will see status updates during the duplication process.
    5. After the file is imported, you will see a summary of the new project.
      • If there are more sheets in the new file than in the source, they are listed as Sheets Unmarked and you can map them manually.
      • You can also see how many answers have been copied from the source file.
      • You can click Edit Project Details to see information about the new project.
      • You can click View Sections to begin working on the new project.
  • Essentials features are subscription-based and may not be available for all users. Contact your account manager, or, for more details.
