Cloning Feed Categories
When you clone a feed, the system automatically generates a custom feed for you. That custom feed format will be taken from the feed that was cloned.
You can associate categories from any feed in the system. This is useful when you want to build a custom feed using the taxonomy from a standard feed.
NOTE: When you clone a standard feed taxonomy structure, the structure is bound to that feed so that any future updates to the standard feed's taxonomy will also apply to the cloned feed.
Cloning Feed Rules
You can select to copy Validation Rules, Filter Rules, Category Rules, and Custom Rules over to the cloned feed.
NOTE: Cloned rules are not affected by changes to the original rule once copied over.
