    There are many many times when I spend time lovingly crafting a page, assignment or outcome and wish to use it as a template for creating further items based on the original.

     

    What we want is a "duplicate" option for pages, assignments and Outcomes...

    Please vote this idea up when it moves to the new voting period as it combines several requests in a single feature but is simpler than the "Kitchen Sink" approach by John Thomson:

    It also tackles the problems set out here for Editing and creating Outcomes that are needed across an institution. By Peggy Dove

     

    This request isn't new, and it received over 400 votes. But STILL there is no simple Copy feature. I have tried to make this as simple as possible for the Developers to understand what is needed and hopefully we will get the feature added to development.

     

    It would be a button added to the Outcomes page (see below) "Duplicate Outcome)

    For the pages, it is simply an option in the dropdown menu for each page:

    and for the Assignments tool, again, simply an addition to the existing menu:
