Why duplicate a card?

Adding the ability of clone a card has been a frequent request and there’s a few occasions where duplicating a card can save a lot of time. The primary motivation for duplicating a card is when you want a new card with most of the same associations. Say, for example, that you have a card that is on an Epic, assigned to two people, and has three related cards. Perhaps you want to break this card down into some smaller tasks, all of which will be on the same Epic, have the same assignees, and should be linked to the same related cards. Duplicating the card would be the way to go! Since duplicating a card also duplicates the associations, all you’ll need to do is to change the title and points on the new cards and you’ll be finished.

From a higher perspective, actually wanting an exact duplicate of a card is extremely rare. However, wanting a new card that is mostly the same as an existing card is something that comes up all the time. The next time it happens, save yourself some time and create a duplicate of an existing card and just change a thing or two.
