Cloning a campaign

The campaign cloning feature allows ThruText admins to create new texting campaigns based on the parameters of previous active or archived campaigns. This feature can help save time and avoid user errors if you are making a large number of similar campaigns. Here's how it works:


Press the "Clone" button

Go to the campaign overview page and pick a campaign you want to clone. Then, click the three vertical dots under "Details" to open the flyout menu and then click "Clone".

You can also clone a campaign from the campaign overview page.

NOTE - If you are creating a cloned campaign with a newly uploaded group, please check that it has finished validating before launching your campaign.

Finish cloning

All of the parameters of the campaign you clone will be brought over into the new campaign you are creating. Details to note:

  • The word "Cloned" will appear before the name of the new campaign. (The name can be edited.)
  • Campaign Segments will need to be added to your new campaign.
  • Senders on the first campaign will not be carried over to the new campaign. Adding senders before launching is optional. For more information on adding senders after launching, please review Campaign Pre-Loading guide.

Click on the desired field to make edits.

NOTE - Check your Start and End dates! The dates on your first campaign will carry over to your new campaign. Start dates and times cannot be edited after launch.

Once you finished making edits, press the "Next" button at the bottom of the page to hop over to the Review stage. (Don't worry, this will not launch your campaign.)  

Review your new campaign

As with any campaign, on the Review page you can edit any aspect of the campaign. For example, you might want to go back and change the initial message script. Once you've completed your review and edits, just press launch like any other campaign, and you'll be off and running!  

NOTE - If you are cloning a campaign that was created before September 2022, you may need to check and verify that the Organization Display name and Opt Out Language are present in your initial message prior to launching.
