Is there an easy way to copy a tag from one profile into another without having to go through all of the steps required to rebuild it?

I work on a site where I'm regularly required to build out identical tags in several different profiles, and the apparent lack of a copy feature makes this process really time-consuming.

Hey Oleg, Unfortunately, there is not an easy way of doing this at this time. A feature like this is on the road map, but as of right now, the way to copy a single extension from profile to profile is very manual. Thanks

Hey Oleg, if the tags are truly identical you might want to explore using Profile Inheritance: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Developers/Profile-Inheritance/m-p/1329

Hey, Clint. We do use the library approach in some cases, so I'll explore that option to see if I can make it work here, but I'm a bit doubtful given some of the other constraints involved. A quick and easy copy/paste feature for replicating tags and load rules across profiles would be the best solution, so please consider this a vote in favor of moving it higher up the road map.

Hi, is this feature available yet? Two years later and I need the same functionality. Please advise!

Add this to your Tealium Tools Extension as a custom tool, @oleg_bulkin and @redfuel318. Select the tags you want to copy in profile A, click on that custom tool, click "Copy selected items", go to profile B, click on that custom tool, click "Paste selected items". Watch magic happening.

I've added this custom tool in the plugin but it doesn't seem to work anymore?

Is it deactivated or something?

Hello @BasTalpa. Sounds like a question for @adrian_browning or @simon_browning. Hopefully they'll be able to reply to you on Monday as they are both in the United Kingdom. 

Remember to give me a kudo if you like my post! Accepting my post as a solution is even better! Also remember that search is your friend.

Hi @BasTalpa,

The tool is still active (although due an update.) There isn't any feedback in with the tool to let you know what has been copied, but it would have copied the selected attributes. There is a slight oddity where you need to be on the Data Layer tab when you select copy in the tool otherwise it won't copy the data layer elements.

Are you not seeing anything populate in the new profile? Feel to drop an email to support@tealium.com and will be happy to help debug the issue.
