Copying ActionsTo copy an action to the clipboard, all you need to do is click the ellipses and select Copy to my clipboard.
You can even have a peek at the code by hovering on top of the (i) to the right of the action name
Save even more time with scopesScopes are collections of actions. They are great if you want to move around a group of actions without having to move one by one. With the addition of the Copy to my clipboard functionality, you are now able to copy an entire group of actions. The caveat here is that variables cannot be initialized inside a scope. So you have to be careful when you want to paste a scope somewhere within the Flow before the variables it's referring to are declared.
Copy actions across FlowsYes, you read correctly! The clipboard works across Flows as well. But as with the scopes, you need to carefully review the copied actions. If you are consistent with your naming convention, you may save some time here, as they may include references to dynamic content not found in the new Flow.
Clearing the ClipboardThe copied actions remain in the clipboard until you exit Flow completely.
Note that this functionality is still in Preview, but will undoubtedly change the way we create Flows!
