How long it takes to clone a flow

The length of time it takes to clone a flow depends on the size and complexity of the flow. Simple flows, like most pre-built flows found in the flows library, will clone instantly. However, complex flows with many components such as messages, splits, filters, or A/B tests may take between a few seconds to a few minutes to clone. 

If a flow is not cloned instantly, the modal will state that the flow will take time to clone, and an in-app notification will appear once the cloning process is complete. You can’t edit the original flow until cloning has finished.
