Copy a Quiz Board

Transcript

Hi, I’m Marcus Burnette from FlipQuiz and today we’re gonna look at a PRO feature that allows you to copy another quiz board to your own account, or duplicate one of your own boards. Now, you might want to do that if you find a board on the site that is mostly suited to your needs but you want to change it just a little bit for your own use, or if you have your own board that you created that you want to copy for use for another class, for example.

Now, there are three ways that you can copy, three places that you can copy a board from. You can copy a board from a profile page of another user or yourself, from your own Dashboard, or from a play mode or overview page, and we’ll look at each one of those individually.

So, just to get started, I’ve gone to our official FlipQuiz profile page where we have some boards pre-created ahead of time, and I’ll go ahead and start by showing you how you can copy from a profile listing. So, on each one of these pre-made boards there is a little Duplicate icon and when you click on that, you will copy the board to your own account. So I’ll go ahead and do that with Second Grade Math here. And when I click on it, you’ll see that it goes ahead and says Clone of Second Grade Math. Now, you can leave that, you can remove that, you can change the title entirely, but I’m just gonna go ahead and remove Clone of, and you’ll see that it’s already pre-filled in all of the questions and answers from the original board. And you can save that as is, or you can make some tweaks and that sort of thing. I’m gonna go ahead and leave it as is ’cause I just want this same board in my own account for now. So I will click Save and Finish. And if I go to my own Dashboard, you can see that I’ve now copied Second Grade Math.

To duplicate one of your own boards, you’ll see that you have your boards on your Dashboard. If you don’t know how to get to your Dashboard, just click the My Boards button that’s right here at the top of the page on every page, and you’ll come to your Dashboard. Go ahead and click on the one that you want to duplicate and it’ll take you to your board’s overview page. Along this line of buttons up here across the top you’ll see one that says Copy Board, and if you go ahead and click that, it’ll do exactly the same and create a clone of that board. I’m gonna go ahead and change this one to Third Grade Math so that I can go through and change some of these for one of my third grade classes. If I save and finish, and then head back to my Dashboard, you’ll see that I now have Second Grade Math and Third Grade Math.

The third way we’ll look at is from an actual gameplay. Now, you might end up at one of the gameplay modes through a Google search, or if you are sent a link by another colleague, and what you’ll end up at is at one of these boards. In the bottom corner, you’ll see a button that says Source and that’ll take you to the Source overview page for this board. Again, from here you’ll find the Copy Board button. It’s first out because you don’t have an Edit button because this isn’t your board. But if you click Copy Board, you’ll see that it’s gone ahead and said Clone of again, and I can go ahead and just delete that to keep it as Simple Integers. And I’ll go ahead and save and finish. If I head back to my Dashboard once again, you’ll see that I have Second Grade Math, Simple Integers, and Third Grade Math, as those are the boards that I’ve copied. And that’s it.
