Copy group content within and across courses

Can anyone help?

There is a feature idea on copying group settings at https://community.canvaslms.com/inbox which was archived  in Jan 2016 due to other priorities and not yet resurrected. 

I would like to be able to provide some common content (templates) in group areas using pages and discussions i.e.

a) create content etc in one group and then be able to copy it in ONE go to other groups in that set 

b) copy group set ups and ALL group content to another course 

i.e. clone within a course and copy set ups across different courses would be the perfect solution 

 

Does anyone have a workaround? 

 

For now I still have to create x nos of separate groups and manually create content in each one as 

  • The blueprint template function does NOT copy group settings or group content into clones
  • Having to create group shells in new course before copying over content and group assignments is time consuming and still does not enable content copying
  • not sure copying content from commons will populate a group - even if does will not do copy to multiple setups
