Playbooks are repeatable workflows and sometimes it’s easier to copy and improve rather than start from scratch.

You can do this by duplicating a playbook in the Playbooks screen. Select the under Actions and then select Duplicate. The copied playbook will have Copy of appended to its original name which you can edit.

To import a playbook, go to the Playbooks screen, and select Import. Choose the team you’re importing to, then select the JSON file. You can also export any playbook to JSON to easily share with other Mattermost servers.

Channel export

Exporting the contents of a channel requires the channel export plugin. See the Channel Export plugin documentation for more information.
