Duplicate a site / variant



A great feature about UpdateCase, is after you create one website it can be duplicated so you can change the content but keep all the work that was completed on the original website
-> This allows to launch many websites from one template
-> They are all unique and have all their own website files

UpdateCase structure:
-> Websites have Variants: Meaning you can create a NEW version without affecting the current version

You are now viewing all the variants for the website
-> Click 'duplicate' 


# 3 > Enter new info

Fill in the info for the new variant
-> If this is simply replacing an OLD variant you can leave the same since it will update the same website

If you are creating a NEW website then you should change all the info that relates to the NEW website
-> Name: this is an internal name that you will use to distinguish your variant
-> Version: use v3 - unless you are working on a legacy website
-> Variant status: you can choose that status of this variant
-> Connectivity: fill in the URLs to the new variant / website
