I’m having trouble duplicating a Notion template. What could be the issue?

Duplicating a template in Notion is a straightforward process. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the template page you want to duplicate.
  2. Locate the “Duplicate” button in the top-right corner of the page. It looks like two overlapping squares.
  3. Click on the “Duplicate” button. Notion will create a copy of the template in your workspace.
  4. Once duplicated, you can rename the new page to suit your needs by clicking on the title and editing it.

Duplicating large templates may take longer due to the volume of content and data. If you’re still experiencing issues, consider the following steps:

  1. Wait and Be Patient: Large templates may take some time to duplicate. Allow a few minutes for the process to complete, especially if the template contains extensive databases, images, or attachments.
  2. Check Internet Connection: Ensure that your internet connection is stable. Slow or interrupted connections can impede the duplication process. Consider refreshing your browser or restarting the Notion app.

If the standard duplication process is causing issues, try these alternatives:

  1. Break it Down: If the template is exceptionally large, consider breaking it down into smaller sections. Duplicate individual pages or sections separately to minimize the load on the duplication process.
  2. Export and Import: Export the template as a Notion archive (.zip file) using the “Export” option in the template’s menu. Then, create a new page in your workspace and use the “Import” option to bring in the archived template. This method can be more robust for large templates.

If repeated attempts still result in failure, try the following:

  1. Refresh and Retry: Refresh your browser or restart the Notion app and attempt the duplication process again. Temporary glitches may be resolved with a simple refresh.
  2. Contact Notion Support: If the issue persists, check the Notion Help Center or reach out to Notion support for assistance. Provide details about the template’s size, content, and the specific problem you’re encountering.
