In this article, we will learn how to copy and paste action in power automate in just 2 steps. Sometimes, very simple things make us annoyed if we don’t the process. In Power Aumate, copy paste action or step is one among them.
Many times, we need to copy-paste similar actions in Power Automate – mainly if you have many conditional branches, and scope controls, we need to add similar actions and need to configure them repeatedly – it is a kind of duplicate work. For example, sending notifications on Yes or No conditions and in Scope controls whether errors are found or not need to notify the flow owner. In these scenarios, instead of adding and re-configuring the actions, we could copy-paste the actions and re-use them without re-configuring or with little changes in the configuration based on the requirement.
So, let’s learn how to copy-paste the action in Power Automate.

Thanks! Another reason we’ve seen people copying flows is to deploy manually triggered flows to multiple SharePoint sites/lists/libraries. There’s a 1-to-1 relationship between a manual flow and a SharePoint site so deploying the automation across SharePoint requires flow duplication.
We’ve developed a solution for this at encodian. Trigger a single Flow from anywhere in SharePoint!
