To copy to an existing doc, just choose from your list of existing docs in the menu, then click "Copy" to copy the page.

Note: If the page you want to copy contains a table, you'll click "Next" and be prompted to choose which rows you want to include in the copy. Please see the section below for more details.

To copy to a new doc, select “New doc” from the menu, then click "Next." Then choose the folder you want to add the new doc to, and click "Copy."

Copy options for tables

If your page contains a table, you will be prompted to select the rows to include in your copied doc.

You can select from:

  • All rows, including those hidden by a filter

  • Visible rows only

  • No rows, just column headers

If you wish to copy the structure of the doc, but not the data, choose "No rows, just column headers."

Copy options for subpages

If your page contains subpages, those subpages will automatically be copied as well unless you toggle the "Include subpages" option to “Off”.

Tips and tricks

  1. When a page is copied, your tables will no longer talk to each other across docs. When you copy pages to a new doc, they will also not be connected to the original doc. Do not delete the original page you copy if you need it to still connect to another page in your original doc.

  2. Need to share a page with a co-worker but can’t share the whole doc? Just copy that page to a new doc for easy viewing with less granular sharing permissions.

  3. Maybe you like the structure of a page, and you want to use it in a different doc. Copying a page to a new doc is an easy way to create your own template.

  4. Copying a page does not relocate your original page. If you don’t want two copies available in your workspace, once you copy a page, remember to go back to the original doc and delete the original page. Please keep in mind tip #1—do not delete the original page if information within it connects to another page in the original doc.

  5. Version history and timestamps will not copy over to the new doc. New timestamps will begin with the new, copied doc.

  6. Sharing permissions for the copied page will be associated with the new or existing doc you move the page to.

  7. If you've disabled copying for your doc, you will not be able to copy a page from the doc into another doc.
