How do I reuse a past semester's subjects and timetable?

Sometimes when you start a new school year, your timetable looks similar (or maybe even the same) as past school years you've taught. Planboard allows you to re-create an existing semester's timetable and classes to help save you valuable time in your year over year setup. Copying a previous semester will also reassign any lesson templates, standards, and curriculum maps that were previously assigned to those classes.

The following support article will show you how to copy a previous semester when creating a new planner in Planboard.

Step 1: 

Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the window, then click Semesters.

Step 2:

This will bring you to the Semesters page, where you can see the list of your previous semesters. Click the + Add Semester button.

Step 3:

Fill out the form with the appropriate data, including the name of your new semester and the start and end dates. At the bottom, there will be a drop down menu for you to select the previous semester with the classes and timetable you would like to copy.

Step 4:

Click Create and your semester will be copied. You will be automatically taken to your new semester's Timetable page to see your copied classes and schedule.

Note: If you want to reuse past lesson plan or assessment content as well, here are further steps to do so using our Copy Section feature.
