If you have multiple clients featured within the same coverage...
e.g. the 10 best X things etc
or perhaps it's in an e-calendar site or frequently refreshed homepage or article, you can now make a copy of the original coverage to edit the screenshots each time you want to include the URL in another book, or in the same book.

Here are a few examples of how you can copy coverage.

How can I show the same coverage more than once in a single book?

Sometimes you might want to include the same coverage more than once in a book, perhaps in different sections within a wider roundup report.

Upload the coverage URL, then head to the section its in and click on the Copy icon. It'll make an exact copy of the clip (The copy will appear to the right of the original).

You can now select the clip and move it to another section in your report.

How to represent more than one client's mention within the same coverage

In this example I've got two different clients, Foodies and Eateries, and they've both been featured in a 'best of' article.

I've already added the coverage to one of my client's books, but I want to add it again to my other client.

Go to the next book and upload the URL.

We'll add the original coverage item from your account to the new book, so you'll also see any edits you've already made to that item. But you can now make a new copy you can edit individually.

First, make a copy of the clip in the book. The copy will save on the right.

Click to edit the copy and select your other client's mention using the "set Image Frame" feature.

You'll now see the new edited copy for your client's book on the right. Just delete the original on the left and you'll have two different edits of the same coverage to represent each of your clients, in different books.

Delete the original...

Both client's mentions are featured in different books for the same coverage URL.

How do I add coverage featured on a homepage, or events listing page that updates its content regularly?

CoverageBook captures a snapshot of the page when it's uploaded to a book, and we'll save that original version in your account. But if the page changes regularly it's possible to make a copy of the original coverage, and update the copy to show the current version of the page using our CoverageBook Screenshot Toolbar. You can also manually upload your own images if preferred.

To do this, first make a copy of the original coverage item in your book. The copy will save to the right.

Next you can trigger a new automated screenshot using the 'Get a fresh screenshot' button.

Alternatively, if you want to take the new screenshot yourself. Click on Fix screenshot to retake the latest version of the page (remember to close any pop ups or cookies windows before taking the new screenshot). The click save to add the new screenshot to the new coverage copy.

Now you'll have two different versions of the same page updated in the book.
