Copying Forward Events Overview
Elentra allows you to copy existing events, including their curriculum tags and resources, by creating a draft event schedule and populating it with events from a previous course and curriculum period. After you have copied the existing events, you can adjust some of the details like teacher, location, audience, etc. and import the events back into your draft. If your curriculum and course structure are relatively consistent, copying existing events can save significant amounts of time when you begin a new academic year.
Complete the required information noting the following:
Note: You can add multiple destination courses if required (to delete an unwanted destination course click Remove beside the course name).
- Elentra will check the date of the event to try to assign the appropriate curriculum period.
- If an event falls on a date that could be in more than one curriculum period you'll likely want to manually set the curriculum period later.
- Exceptions to setting a curriculum period are if you have a date that can exist in multiple curriculum periods and you have multiple course enrolment audiences and you want all audiences to attend the event.
Click Save Draft. Your draft schedule of events will be created. Review and edit events as needed, either through the interface, or by exporting the schedule of events, updating via CSV, and re-importing the edited events. For more details, see the Knowledge Base article Create and Manage Events.
If you copy forward recurring events that have the parent-child id feature enabled, these linkages will be maintained in the copied events. If there are no changes you wish to make to the schedule, you can publish the draft now.
