Copy Trigger into new Interaction

would really appreciate the ability
to copy / duplicate an interaction…
so I can simple retarget the interaction to another class.

example:

click interaction on div_1

  • calls div_2

copy interaction… and point call to div_3… then div_4… etc.

This would useful if you have several interactions that are similar.

Currently… each interaction has to be manually created.


ADMIN EDIT: This feature is already live now in the Designer - Waldo

you can currently duplicate an interaction and then change the targeting class. Is that what you mean? I have used this method many times. In the interactions list there are three options edit, duplicate or delete.

This will be a little difficult to explain… and may be a little confusing.

Once you create a set of triggers

  • you can copy it and assign it to another class

At a much lower level (within the the class)

  • you can also copy Steps within a Trigger.

But within a class

  • you cannot copy a Trigger that to a new Trigger (Example 1).
  • and cannot copy a Trigger to a new class (Example 2).

Example 1:

(Assume) Select class div_Svc-1 and click on the Assets Tab (Interactions)

onClick (of div_Svc-1)… I want to affect the positions of 3 other classes

  • div_Svc-2, div_Svc-3, div_Svc-4.

So… I create a Click Trigger and assign it to div_Svc-2

  • and add whatever steps are needed for that Trigger.

At this point… I cannot copy the newly created Trigger (assigned to div_Svc-2)

  • to div_Svc-3 or div_Svc-4
  • even though (in this particular case) the steps are very similar and only need minor tweaking.

I have to manually create each Trigger (and all Steps) for div_Svc-3 and div_Svc-4.

AND… in explaining this… I used 3 DIVs to make it easier to understand

  • In this particular project… I actually have 15 triggers… not just 3.

Example 2:

If I select class div_Svc-1 again… I can copy the entire set of Triggers

  • then click on class div_Svc-2 and assign the newly copied Triggers to div_Svc-2.

I can do the same thing for div_Svc-3 and div_Svc-4.

Now - Assume that I make a change to a Trigger in div_Svc-1…

  • or add several Triggers to div_Svc-1.

I cannot copy the changed / updated Triggers

  • or copy the new Triggers in div_Svc-1
    ---- to div_Svc-2, div_Svc-3, or div_Svc-4.

Again - I have to manually create them.

If you are dealing with a lot of Triggers with a lot of Steps…

  • and changing changing a lot of values…
  • a copy Trigger to class would be very helpful.
    ---- (If a Trigger was already copied… a “forced update” would be nice as well.)
