Is there a way to duplicate an account? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,


    I need the opposite of duplicate detection!  I have 1 account, but under the exact same account there's 5 different account numbers, so I need them in CRM 5 times.  Everything is the same except the account number.  Is there a way to copy an account or duplicate one?  Thanks!

  • Hi Liam,

    You could use a workflow triggered on create of your account (or on demand if you want it to be a manual process) that contains 5 'create record' steps, each one could create an account with the same information as the parent and you could also update the 'parent account' of the 5 children to be that of the account from which the workflow is being triggered.

    Hope that helps,
