Duplicate, Clone, or Copy anything in Canvas

Duplicate, Clone, or Copy anything in Canvas

(1)
This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
An option to "make a copy" should be present on nearly every gear in Canvas -- modules, quizzes, assignments, announcements, pages, discussions, rubrics...

 

Consistency is an important element of good course design, and this would help instructors and designers achieve it more easily.

I'd like to add Rubric Criterion Lines to this idea for the ability to Duplicate, Clone, or Copy anything in Canvas. This would be particularly time saving for data point cells.

Hi Ron,

In the production release of 11-18-17 https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13339-canvas-production-release-notes-2017-11-18  we can now duplicate rubric criteria...is that what you were referring to, or are you wanting something else?

YES! I went back to check this, and thankfully this crazy, repetitious, eye-crossing automaton work of creating rubrics is gone. Hooray! Thanks, bogardde‌ for your reply.

Duplication of single criterion is selectable from the popup menu. Well done!

Being able to Mass delete, pages, module content, assignments, etc. would also be extremely helpful.

Didn't get to vote on this. Couldn't agree more. Just make less steps to do anything.

Please let us clone rubrics

If the rubric is already in use, you cannot change it.  If I wan tot use it for multiple assignments, but add something to one of them, I have to recreate the whole rubric from scratch, or else go through the laborious process of copying it out to a different course, renaming it, and copying it back in.
