Copy Categories

Settings > Administer Categories

Once you establish the categories for a course on the Administer Categories page, you can copy the categories to other course sections. All categories for a course must be copied as a group to the other course; you cannot copy individual categories. The categories for a course section cannot be copied to itself.

This page is only accessible from the Administer Categories page.

Copy categories:

1.        On the Administer Categories page, use the Semester and Course Section fields to select the course section from which you want to copy categories.

The categories for the course section are displayed.

2.        Click Copy categories to other course sections. The Copy Categories page is displayed.

      The From field displays the course from which you are copying categories.

      In the table, all of your active courses are displayed with check boxes. Under Copy, select one or more courses to which you want to copy the categories.

o      If any of your other courses have categories that have assignments, you cannot copy to those courses. The Copy check boxes for the courses are grayed out, and you cannot select the courses.

o      You can click a course title to view the existing categories for the course. A dialog box displays the categories for the course. Click Ok to close the window.

      In the PIN field, type your four-digit PIN. The field is disabled for inquiry-only users.

      Click Copy to copy the categories.

3.        If the categories were successfully copied, the page reloads and displays a list of courses to which your categories were copied. The changes are saved to the database.

If you attempt to copy categories to a course that already has categories (but no assignments), a message is displayed warning you that you will override any categories that exist for the other course(s). To continue, click Continue, or click Cancel to cancel the action.

4.        To return to the Administer Categories page, click Back to Categories.
