Is there a way to duplicate a draft campaign?

The question is pretty much in the subject:

Is there a way to duplicate a draft campaign?

I've got a campaign I need sent to multiple subscribers' list, but the content vary a little with each list (url, file linked are different, etc). So I'd like to duplicate the draft (which is due to be sent on May 14th) and populate my content for my other list already.

Any thoughts?
Perhaps -> Add to wish list? ^_^

PS: Ho and... Hiya all! I'm a new forum contributer around here... I've been around for a while though!

Hi NickoLabs, welcome to the forums! At present, you can't duplicate draft campaigns, prior to send, anyway. I've noted your interest in this feature - it certainly would be useful to have!

Many thanks for hanging in there - we'll keep you posted if it's something we introduce into the app.

Thanks you for your warm welcome and your support.

I'll simply send the email to a testing list (my little email... alone in a list... feeling lonely... cold... ^_^ ), set it to be invisible to clients, then duplicate it as much as I want. Kind of a long shot, but still work!

I'd like to second this request.  I often have to send the same blast to different lists at different times and it would be very useful to be able to duplicate a draft.

I'd like to see this implemented as well.

As @robsedor mentioned above, there are time when I have to send the same campaign, unchanged, to separate lists at separate times. I also sometimes am required to send the same campaign to different lists that need to be kept separate for reporting reasons.

I know I could just upload the files each time, but to take any sort of ambiguity out of which version the client has approved, being able to duplicate it inside CM would be safer.

@adnrw  You can achieve everything you need already, just by using 'edit and resend' once you've sent the campaign the first time. No need to reupload files at all.

@Matthew Your suggestion doesn't work when you need to schedule the various campaigns all at once.  If I am scheduling campaigns to go out at 2 am, 4 am, and 6 am, Edit and resend isn't practical.

+1 Vote from me for duplicating drafts - have wanted to do this many times when editing and resending isn't an option yet. A little duplicate icon near the trash can when you hover over a draft would be great

+1 from me too.
Just had a client ask me how to do this, and I was surprised to find that you can't duplicate a draft.

+1 for me, too.
Really useful for event reminders where you only need to change a couple of details.

Thanks!
