EHQ allows administrators to copy the information stored in widgets from one project to another. This allows you to save time when setting up multiple project pages which might require recurring information to be made available across all projects.
Which widgets can be copied from one project to another?
The copy functionality is available only for the following widgets (to which the frequent replication of information is relevant):
- Key Dates
- Who’s Listening
- Document Library
- Important Links
The other widgets for which copying is not relevant and hence are not supported are: Follow Project, Facebook, Related Projects, Signup banner, News Categories and the Quick Poll tool (configurable as a widget).
Hence the copy option, will be seen only on the widgets where this functionality is enabled as highlighted below.
How to copy a widget?
- Click on the relevant widget.
- Click the Add FAQ/Document/Stage button.
- Choose copy and select only the content you need.
This is demonstrated below, the contents of the FAQs widget is copied from another project.
Note: For the life-cycle widget, please be sure to delete all the default stages before copying stages from other projects.
How do I know that the copy is complete?
When the copy is complete, you should see the data within your widget on the back-end and Front-end.
The copying process works in a 'non-blocking' manner, which means administrators can initiate copying of large volumes of information and still move around to other parts of the app while the copying continues in the background.
Who has access to copy a widget?
Project admins and Hub admins can copy information ONLY from other projects that they have access to. Site admins can copy information from ALL PROJECTS.
