Moving, copying and duplicating items

Items can be moved, copied and duplicated within the same library

Moving or copying items

In any library in TAO you can move elements to a different folder by dragging and dropping them to the new destination. This not only applies to items but also to tests and test-takers, etc. You can copy elements by duplicating and moving them to a different folder. This is, however, limited to desktop environments.

The buttons Copy To and Move To allow you to do this in a different, platform-independent way.

1. Click on the Copy To Copy To or Move To Move To icon in the button bank under the library.

The following dialog will appear:

Copying an item
Copying an item

2. Select the new folder and click on Copy or Move at the bottom of the dialog depending on your original action.

Duplicating an item

You can make a copy of an already existing item by clicking on the Duplicate Duplicate icon in the button bank under the library. This is similar to the Copy To button described above, but in this case, a duplicate will be created in the folder of the item you have duplicated, with the same name but with “bis” on the end.
