In this article, we will be reviewing the following concepts:
Viewing Template History / Restoring Previous Versions
To view the history of your templates, go to a list of templates and hover over the template that you'd like to see. From the options that pop up, select "Revision history." You'll be redirected to a page that shows the history of that particular template.
You can also access the same revision history if you have the template open in template editor ("See Revisions" on the bottom left of the page).
With the revision history page open, click any two check boxes on the left side of the page then "Compare Selected Versions" to see a preview of what each version looks/looked like.
If you find that you would like to restore a previous version, hover over that version and select "Restore" on the right.
Note: Restoring only affects the HTML content of the template. Other settings like subject line and custom parameters will not be restored.
Clone an Existing Template
To clone an existing template to your current project, go to a list of templates and hover over the template that you'd like to clone. From the options that pop up, select "Clone."
You can also clone a template from within the template editor.
Clone an Existing Template across Projects
You can clone existing templates across projects through the Manage Templates page (Templates > Templates from the left navigation bar). In order to do this, you must have access to both projects and be at least a Contributor in the destination project.

In the "Clone" window as seen above, choose "Clone to Another Project." You will then be prompted to select the project, message channel, and sender of the template. Select "Clone Now" to copy your template.
Note: In order to clone to another project, that project must have verified email senders.
You can choose to stay in your current project by closing the window or you can go to the newly created template in the other project.
When you clone a template to a different project, all of the locales in the original project will carry over to the destination project.
In the above example, a template was cloned from Michelle's Project to the Video Training Project. Once the template is cloned, all locales from Michelle's project will be carried over to the Video Training Project.
Locales that do not exist in the destination project will be created. If the destination project already contains locales, the order of the existing locales will remain the same and new locales will be added to the end of the list.
