If you have the requirement to make a copy of a policy or procedure you can do this using Way We Do's Duplicate & Template feature.

You can make a copy of a policy or procedure that's in either Draft or Published status.

When copying a published procedure you're creating an exact replica of the original. This means the newly copied version will maintain all existing criteria i.e. Responsibilities, Schedules & Tasks, Attachments, Acceptance, Tags, Revision Date, and Restriction.

Copying a checklist will also maintain all Decision Point conditions, Due Dates, Events, & Delays.

Your copy will be initially created as a Draft in Edit Mode.

Note: the process for copying a Standalone Procedure and an Activated Checklist is the same.

Copying a Standalone Procedure or Activated Checklist

1. Navigate to the Standalone Procedure or Checklist you want to make a copy of

2. Select the Copy & Template button

7. If you have copied a published checklist then you will also need to amend the relevant criteria i.e.

Responsibilities, Schedules & Tasks, Attachments, Acceptance, Tags, Revision Date, and Restriction.

Procedure History: When you make a copy of a Standalone Procedure or an Activated Checklist, the copied version has its "Procedure History" reset to zero.
