Copy and Paste between Workflows

It would be great to be able to copy any part of a Workflow and be able to paste it into another workflow.

    Please add the copy and paste between different workflows, so we can save time to rebuild every single action manually and reduce input errors.

    I create lots of templates to reuse later but currently I have to rebuild them from the template so this would be amazing and time saving

    This would definitely save a lot of time as I often come across reusable workflow actions that I could copy across workflows.

    This will add a tremendous time saving, specially when you are consolidating workflows.

    This would be a huge time savings.
    Best practice is always to build in Dev first then transfer to Prod. This will help save time and reduce errors.
    Even if it was some form of export and import instead of copy/paste, it would be a huge gain.

    Yes also agree that snippets should be returned

    This would be a huge time saver, I created c. 10 emails and it took a while to get them set up, then I wanted to re-use them in another workflow, but had to create them all again. Also the same for a group of operations.

    I would like to also extend this to form rules if possible, as I have the ability to clone a rule, but not copy/paste a rule into a similar or parallel workflow (different instance). Thanks

Ability to copy and paste activities between workflows in different tabs/windows

Ability to copy and paste activities between workflows in different tabs/windows.This will save an immense amount of time when you want to re-use complex activities previously created in new workflows.

Add snippets functionality to NWC

Following from a discussion on the community, it would be great to bring the Nintex for SharePoint functionality of snippets to NWC. Snippets allows for parts of a workflow to be saved to a gallery for easy re-use in other workflows.
