Linked Events: Sharing Assignments

This article will show you how to share assignments across Linked Events.

This feature creates an Assignment folder in each Event within the Linked Event set. If you adjust the attributes of the Assignment, such as name, availability, etc., all of the associated Events will be updated. You can delete the folder from one of the Events and the rest will remain, however this should only be done in rare circumstances - in order to maintain coherent curriculum mapping and comparability of Student work across the Events within the set.
