Add template to existing app


I’m trying to add a messaging feature to my existing app, and found a template that could work well on the marketplace ( Does anyone know if I can add/port in this entire template to my existing app somehow, or if I have to do this manually (by copying each workflow step, etc.)?

Thanks so much!


Hi Su-Young,

Unfortunately there is no way to apply a template to an existing app outside of copying and pasting elements. If it helps, you can copy/paste “with workflows” if you right-click. You may still have to reconnect some things if there are custom states involved, plugins used in the template, workflow folders, etc.

Gotcha - thank you Gaby!

hie @suyoungkim.syk did you manage to customize pastel within your app, im having a bit of a problem its now acting as a group chat instead of one to one messaging. Can you help me ? i think the issue is here


Do you know if there’s any new possibilities to add templates/blocks after app creation. I would like a complete copy and past with database tables and popups etc.

Best, Peter


It actually is really simple.

Just open a new app and start with the template that you just added to your account. On the new app, make sure you selected the whole page for example: ‘index’. Then just right-click ‘copy with workflows’. Then go to your existing app, just right-click and click ‘paste’.

You’ll then get a message from Bubble ‘Do you want to paste this new page?’ just proceed and you’re done. :slight_smile:



Hey Bubble is such a great tool. Its easy to use except two points. To understand how to add/change template and also when I delete paid app that this paid subscription can not be easily migrated to other app .

Here to the root problem of the this topic. Please enable us to add any template to any app anytime. What If I want to change template of my existing app?

Otherwise we need to use workarounds which generate unnecessary costs to you Bubble - free new apps which are just used for manual copy paste of template.

Thank you.


Exactly Pavol. Why not just implement a new feature for customer happiness? I have like 6 apps while only building one. But I like different things from different templates and copying and pasting is tough
