Alfr-Community-5.2 Site template VS copying sites

Hi all, 

I'm planning to create around 200 sites (one by client), I've created the first one, I've tunned the site dashboard, rules on the site .... Do I need to repeat all this steps for every Customer Site?

It's possible to copy a site with anothe name?

Thanks a lot.

Site presets are extremely valuable for having sites with identical dashboard configurations. They do not affect the content structure, but since the preset is stored as a property on the site you could implement a custom behaviour to lookup a space template in Data Dictionary and use that to initialise the site doclib structure.
