Do you have a great post in one Space that you want to transfer into another? You can easily copy posts as a teacher or a student.

To copy a post:

  1. Click the menu button (three dots) at the bottom right of the post

  2. Select Copy Post - here you will see the post editing panel, with the contents of the post you are copying

  3. Make changes to the post, or you click Next to copy as-is

  4. Select the Space (Class, Group, or Individual) that you'd like to copy the post to, and click Next

  5. If prompted, select the student(s) or group(s) to add to copied post, or select Entire Class, then click Next

You have successfully copied a post!

Note: The copied post is treated as its own new post with visibility settings based on the space it is in.

Here are a few more things to keep in mind when copying posts:

  • You can only copy a post between spaces within the same class.

  • Teachers can copy posts for any individual student in their class, and/or Entire Class posts.

  • Students can only copy their own posts, and can only copy into spaces that they have access to post in.

    • Don't see the Copy Post option, or a particular space to select when copying? This means it's not your post, or you don't have access to create posts in that space.

  • Copied posts include all of the attachments and curriculum tags associated with the original post, but not any comments on the post.

  • Edits made to the copied post will not affect the original post

  • New comments added to the copied post will not be visible on the original post.

Looking to copy an Activity instead? Take a look at this article! Note that copying an Activity will not copy any posts that have been published from the existing activity.
