Clone your report definition
If you’re creating a new report based on a previous audience definition, you will find it easier using our ‘clone your report’ feature. Additionally, if you want to create a report with the same definition as a previous report, as well as some newly added criterias, this feature will help you.
In the report list, in the actions menu, you will find an option for clone audience definition. This will open a new report creation menu with the definition added, from there you can edit it by removing or adding criteria. Once you are ready, launch your report!
If one of your reports failed to generate, you can easily use the ‘clone your report’ feature to start again and add/remove criteria so that it has another chance to generate.
The cloning method is available for the Basic Audience Manager (as used in the Free plan), and for the Advanced Audience Manager, Conversations, and MeltWater search (as found in the Paid plan). Cloning the definition is unavailable for File Uploads, or Pulsar methods.
