Copy the skeleton of repeated tutorial types
Tammy Keilman
I was wondering if it is currently possible to copy a tutorial. I have multiple video tutorials and instead of recreating each one from scratch every time I want to make a new one, is it possible to copy one and then update/edit the information for the new? Google forms has that "Make a copy" capability, so I am wondering if that is possible here. Thanks?

Tammy - it's a great idea! I'm working with the engineering team to discuss how to make something like this possible, sort of a prepopulated tutorial for each user as they make them.

I'll keep you up to date. I know it'll save me tons of time, too! Any other ideas are welcome!

I agree that this would be very helpful. If we could create a template or just copy a previous tutorial, then it would be very simple to replace the title, links, etc.

Each tutorial contains a lot of repeated information: school, textbook, even instructions and icons.

That is a really good question. This would be a great feature for Sophia to add. How about it Carolyn? :-)

Thanks, David. It would save a ton of time! I'm finding I'm spending quite a bit of my efforts setting up the same format for each tutorial for the objectives, settings, titles, etc. and I'd rather spend that time on creating more tutorials. I love it!
And at the end of my last post it was supposed to say "Thanks!" not "Thanks?" :)
