    Yes, yes! The process of copying to Resources and back to the Course is cumbersome and time consuming. A "copy in place" feature would be wonderful!

    That would be a great feature!

    Would like to see an upgrade on the copying options. Right now it is very time consuming to copy assignments from one course to another. Frequently, I just end up recreating them instead of copying to resources and back. Something that would allow me to do a bulk copy from one course to another and as others have said, maybe even a "copy in place" option.

    Please add this. We came from MBC and that was so easy to do, along with duplicating a question within an assignment.

    Also, if we could have the option of copying an assignment and keeping the due date with the assignment so I don't have to re-input the due date everytime I copy an assignment!

    I'd like to see this apply to all resources, and here's an example why.  I use an Office 365 Form to collect feedback from trainings that we do.  I use a Course with multiple folders to separate out our sessions.  The extra clicks to send to my Resources only to copy back out is cumbersome.  A Duplicate option beneath the Edit or Delete from the gear drop-down would help me copy a template over and over for our different sessions within a Schoology Course.

    Not only would I like to see a "duplicate assignment" feature but even a "replicate" assignment feature.  For example, if I have essentially the same assignment each week (dictation, spelling test, reading, etc.,) I should be able to "Replicate X times" with increments of weekly, daily, monthly, etc.

    Yes! Duplicating an assignment would be so much easier than copying and pasting or saving to resources and then importing back into the course.

    Yes, please!  I have the same assignment for all of my students, but each student has a different prompt (in my case, a different problem that they need to analyze and solve).  Sooo frustrating and sooo much time wasted having to recreate the assignment for every student, especially when I have to add the same SLOs every time.  Please add this!  It's a basic feature that should already be included.

    This is invaluable.  Weekly logs are painstakingly long to recreate.  We have 9 a quarter so I have to do this 36 times.  Such a simple feature that other LMS offer.

    This would be so helpful and time saving. I have 5 assignments that are repeated each week of school just for spelling. With the current setup it takes a lot of time to create these over 40 weeks for just a small portion of my lessons.

    Please add duplicate and/or replicate to our options.

    This is a very basic feature.  I have whole courses saved as folders in one Schoology course.  I have one link to a Microsoft Form that needs to go in each course at the top.  I should not have to save each course into a resource folder, nor should I have to copy the link from resources to each of the almost 30 courses I have saved in those folders.  I hope this is coming soon.  What should be an easy task is going to take me probably hours to do.

    This feature would be extremely useful! It would help with teachers teaching a hybrid model with two different grading groups!

    I agree that it would be much more convenient to have the option to duplicate an assignment within a course. I am new to Schoology and am regularly surprised that simple functionality like this is absent. And I'm discouraged about likelihood of improvements when I see that requests for these features have appeared in conversations that are years old and nothing has changed.

    We are moving to an A/B schedule-- 1/2 the class in person day A, the other 1/2 on day B. We REALLY need this feature so teachers can easily craft CLEAR deadlines for kids when they are at home. Teachers would like to make an A folder and a B folder (in the SAME class)  same items (ALL ITEMS, Assignments, Pages, etc)  in the folder, different dates, use of grading groups to only show each group their materials. WE NEED THIS SO MUCH.

    We desperately need a feature that will allow us to copy  an assignment within the same class into a different folder.  So many schools this year, mine included, have gone to splitting our classes into two and even 3 groups.  I have a groupe A, B and C for every class I teach. Our gradebook (Skyward) is tied to our Schoology accounts so it is not possible to create 2 or 3 classes within Schoology to accommodate the different groups and clearly lay out their assignments and lessons.  Allowing us to copy the same assignment within the same class to a different folder is a VERY MUCH NEEDED FEATURE.  It would provide us better clarity in communication of expectations.

    Sadly I have completely lost faith in the power of these forums, and Schoology does not seem to take our feedback into account any longer as indicated by long-running request threads. There was a time this felt like it was working.

    I will add this for the many who are splitting schedules in odd ways for Hybrid instruction: it would also be REALLY nice if we could differentiate due dates and publication for Grading Groups and not just Linked Sections, which might eliminate the need to copy/duplicate content.

    This dates back to 2014.

    The feature should be called Duplicate, and it should be in the gear icon near the Copy option just like Adam said.

     

    Even though the support article says to copy it to Resources and then to your classes, that's just a workaround for a pretty standard feature in a CMS/LMS.

    How has this not been added?  This was from 2014 and with distance learning happening across the country, something so simple should have already been added.

    Yes please.  Our district came from Moodle and "Duplicate" is an option our teachers were expecting.
