Duplicate a Collection?

Is there a way to Duplicate a Collection?  

We're building Magazine apps and issues w/ tP5 and it would expedite the process if there were a way to duplicate an issue collection, and then simply replace the art and the article files. Each month the structure of the issue is the same, however, the content within that structure changes. 

The ability to duplicate a collection would (to an unpublished collection) would aid many digital publishers that produce monthly issues.

Thanks, 

Tommy

Can you be more specific please? What use would this have? You would still need to change the title, product identifiers, names etc?

Each month, the current issue of the magazine gets moved to the Archives collection and a new issue is created to take it's place.  Each month the new issue follows the same format as the previous issue w/ a Cover Feature, 3 (or more) additional Feature articles, and, Columns and Departments.  It also features the same Header (placeholder)  and additional placeholder images separating sections.  Each month each of those sections are duplicated with associated cell styles. It is a tedious process to create the new collection for an entire issue.  

IF the previous issue could be DUPLICATED, then each article renamed, and new content uploaded to it, all of the associated cell styles would be preserved as well as the order, placeholder dividers, etc.  I estimate it would save a few hours of effort per issue!

I hope this clarifies the request. 

thank you,

Tommy

Would love to have this feature just to duplicate a collection and then just change language-specific content, not having to recreate the whole structure.
