This tutorial shows how to Clone an already created Competition or Competition with Contests. Any competition that was created, and in any state (Started, Finished, Cancelled), can be Cloned.

You can read our step by step guide our watch a video tutorial on Competition Cloning.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

Explanatory subtitles are added to the video.

Please note that the video provided might not be visually 100 % accurate with the current interface as we are constantly improving and introducing new features although the videos will provide all the necessary information that is needed for explanation purposes.

Step 1: Navigation

In your CompetitionLabs space, navigate to Competitions → + New CompetitionHere you will see a list of already pre-created competitions. 

The list shows pre-created competitions by Label, ID, Status, Products that were used in the competition and Members that could participate.
The Cloning principle is simple – as in the example shown, you can see an Action button called Clone () – when pressed the selected competition will be cloned as is.

 

Three things are not cloned in the competition cloning process:

  1. The Status of the competition will be not cloned i.e. when you clone the competition it will be in Ready state.
  2. The date that the competition will Start and End. That means that you need to select a new start and end time and date of the competition.
  3. ID – an Id is a unique identification for a competition and contest. Cloning will create a new ID for the competition and Contest.

To begin Cloning just press on the Clone action button and the process will start.

Step 2.1: Cloning the Competition

When the cloning process started, all of the information from the pre-created competition is copied over, meaning that all the information is already populated in the competition text boxes.

As noted before, only a date and time has to be selected for the cloned competition. If you are satisfied with the competition that was selected for cloning all that is left is to press the ‘Next’ action button until you reach the final confirmation screen, where pressing the ‘Finish’ action button will complete the cloning process of the Competition.

You can always edit the cloned Competitions information if needed. No restrictions are added. Remember that any edits that are made are represented in the pre-created contests as well.

For example if in the cloned Competition a new Product is selected or an old one was removed it might make a difference in the Rules of the Contest that were pre-created.

Step 2.2: Cloning the Contest

When you are done with the Competition cloning the process automatically redirects you to the Contest cloning (If the Competition had any Contests). If the Competition had multiple Contests each Contest will need to be Finished/Created before moving to the next Contest cloning.

You can always edit the cloned Contest information if needed. No restrictions are added. Remember that any edits that were made in the Competition cloning are NOT automatically represented in the cloned Contests so manual edits might be needed. Cloning only represents the pre-created Competition and Contests information.

For example if a new Product was added in the Competition and you want the product to be added in the Contest Rules – you need to add it.

When all the Contests are Finished cloning you are done.

Congratulations! You have mastered the Cloning function.
