Add Pages to Your Mission

There are 3 ways you can add a page within Mission:

First Option: Within Mission's edit mode, select + New Page on the left panel.

+ New Page link

Second Option: Within Mission's edit mode, check the box for the page you want to duplicate. Then select the duplicate icon. The duplicated page will appear below.

Tip: Use this method when you want to keep the existing filters and breakdown from the 1st page in subsequent pages (it only works when the dataset remains the same). This saves you time and reduces effort on repetitive tasks!

Third Option: If you see a page in Search or in someone's Mission that you want to add to your own Mission, select Add Page to Mission and create a new Mission or select an existing one.
