Cloning a campaign

The campaign cloning feature allows ThruText admins to create new campaigns based on the parameters of previous 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:

Step 1: Press Clone

Go to the campaign index and pick a campaign that you want to clone. Then press the clone button.

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

Step 2: Finish Cloning

All of the parameters of the campaign you clone will be brought over into the new campaign you are creating, except for the following:

  • Name
  • Start date / time
  • End date / time
  • Target list
  • Senders (optional)  

To edit those parameters, you can use the "Finish Cloning Campaign" screen, which is where you'll land after you press clone.

Once you fill out the Finish Campaign Cloning screen, press Save and Continue to get to the review stage. (Don't worry, this will not launch your campaign.)  

Save & Continue

Note - If you are cloning from a campaign that was created pre-10DLC, you may need to backtrack to Step 1 of campaign creation to add 10DLC requirements. You may need a Use Case or an Organization Display Name and Opt Out Language. If you needed to add the Organization Display Name and Opt Out Language, you will need to add these fields to your initial message. 

Step 3: Review

When you press Save and Continue at the bottom of the Finish Campaign Cloning screen, you'll land on the Campaign Review, step 6 of campaign creation, just as if you had begun the campaign from scratch. As with any campaign, at this stage you can edit any aspect of the campaign. For example, you might want to go back and change the initial 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 creating a cloned campaign with a newly uploaded group, please check that it has finished validating before launching your campaign.
