Create Content Copies in the Room


This article is for general users of ClassDo e.g. students. If you are an organisation owner, admin, or member with admin permissions e.g. tutor, please refer to this article.

Want to create a copy of a document or sketchpad in the virtual room complete with all the annotations you have made on it? No need to download the document or re-upload it, you can simply duplicate it to create a copy of the document/sketchpad in any other group or desk in the room! You can even copy documents/sketchpads from within a desk to the main room or groups.

If you want to copy the document/sketchpad to other rooms, you can do so from the content library.

However, note that some types of content cannot be copied, namely Typepads, Polls and YouTube videos. If you would like to move them to a different folder, you can use the Move Content function.

As you do not have the permission to rename, create or upload any content in the main room without host approval or to Switch desks, you CANNOT copy content to/from the Main Room.

You can only copy to/ from group folders or your own desk.

1

Select Content to Copy

On the document or sketchpad that you want to duplicate or copy to another group/desk, click the downwards arrow next to the content name to open the additional options menu. Note that textpads, polls and YouTube videos cannot be copied.

Click Copy.

If you do not have permission to copy or edit the files, the Copy option will not appear.

Select Groups/Desks to Copy to

Select the checkboxes next to the groups/desks you wish to copy the document/sketchpad to. (You can select more than one. You can also choose to duplicate the document in the same folder it is currently in.)

As you do not have the permission to rename, create or upload any content in the main room without host approval or to Switch desks, you will NOT be able to copy content to the Main Room folder or other room members' desks.

You can only copy to group folders or your own desk.

You can type the folder name into the searchbar and select the folder you wish to copy the content to.

Note that you cannot copy content to other rooms from the room. If you wish to copy content to other rooms, you can do so from the content library instead.

Copy the Content

After you have selected all the folders you wish to copy the content to, click Copy.

You can then find the duplicated file with the name original file name (Copy) in the selected groups/desks.  

All the annotations in the original document is preserved in the duplicate.
