Copy the Tutor's Schedule to Other Tutors
- Load the schedule you want to be the source of the copy. To do so, fill in the tutor search box (change the Center, edit mode, or any other filter) and click Apply.
- When the schedule has loaded, click Copy.
- If you're in the Term/Semester Mode, you'll get the pop-up shown in the image below:
- In the semester's edit mode, only the events defined for this semester will be copied excepting the events declared as exceptions.
- If you’re in the Exceptions Only Mode or Merged Mode, you’ll get the pop-up shown in the image below:
- In the Exceptions Only edit mode, only the events defined as exceptions will be copied to the destinations. You can select to copy the exceptions in the entire semester or only the ones in the specified period.
- If you’re in the merged edit mode, you’ll get the same pop-up shown above. All events that match the copy criteria will be copied to the destinations, regardless if they’re defined in the semester's mode or they’re exceptions.
You can also decide if you want to automatically assign to the destinations the subject areas used in the source scheduling. You’ll have to check that option if you want all destinations to have the same subject areas as the source schedule has associated.
