Copy a Discussion Board

Copying a board allows you to duplicate the structure of a board. The original board remains intact with its conversations available for your reference online. The copy is structurally identical but does not contain any of the conversations or posts from the original board.

There are two ways of copying a discussion board: either on the account page or through the Manage section of the GoPost.

To copy a discussion board via account page, follow these steps:

  1. StepsActions
  2. Log in to your Catalyst Tools page.
  3. On the Catalyst tools account page, find the discussion board you want to copy.
  4. Click the Actions dropdown menu located to the right of the discussion board, and select Copy.
  5. Give the discussion board a new name if desired. The participant and collaborator groups will not be copied over.
  6. Click Copy board when you are done. Or, click Cancel to discard the copy.

To copy a discussion board through the Manage page, follow these steps:

  1. StepsActions
  2. Log in to your Catalyst Tools page.
  3. On the Catalyst tools account page, click the discussion board you want to copy.
  4. Click Manage in the global navigation at the upper right. You will move to the "Manage" page.
  5. Click Copy Board.
  6. On the Copy Board page, give the new board a name. You may copy over scheduled availability events and administrator and moderator settings if you set these up on the original board.
  7. Click Copy board when you are done. Or, click Cancel to discard the copy and return to the Manage page.
