Cloning a control or promotion spud means making an exact copy of the spud. The clone preserves all of the original spud's settings and styles. The only difference is that you have to assign a new configuration name at the time you create the clone.
When you want to create an almost identical copy of a spud, cloning saves you from having to go through the spud customization process all over again. You can just tweak the few settings and styles you want to change.
Tip If want to use the same spud type for more than one purpose or webpage and the new spud's settings and styles will differ significantly from those of the existing spud, it's probably faster just to create a new version.
The following instructions assume that you have already published your calendar and created the spud that you want to clone.
For example, you might use a name that indicates the spud's purpose (Digital_Signage) or the webpage you're embedding it on (Alumni_Home).
