Copying the series but changing lists

I created an email series and activated to just a small list of two people - basically to test it out. However, it's my understanding that if I disable or cancel it, I can't reactivate it - period. 

 

If I copy the series, can I then change the list it delivers to? And can I add an email to the copied series? I'm not seeing a way to do this anywhere.

Hello @MaryW6313 ,

 

Once an automation series is activated, you won't be able to add steps or change its associated lists. When you copy it, you'll be able to add email steps, change its triggers (such as associated lists), and do all the other initial setup stuff that you could with the original before activating.
