Hydra lightning component has three main features:-
- Number of clones : Hydra provides a feature in which user can mention the number of cloned objects that are needed. All these records are created together.

Great product and great company to work with!
I installed the app and created a Lightning action called "SuperClone" to use this lightning component. Yes, you can name it whatever you would like! I had some questions and the company that developed this free App, Astrea, was very quick to respond and went the extra mile to make sure all questions were answered. Users love the SuperClone! They are able to take a quote with hundreds of related line items now and clone it one or more times in an instant. What a time saver! Users can even modify the newly cloned record before cloning and select which related lists to clone, too.
Thanks, Astrea, for another great free product. I also used Octopus to document our system, which is also a HUGE time saving tool.
