Instructions for creating copies of library media within Echo360
You may not see the Create copy option. If your administrator has disabled the ability to create copies, you will not see the create copy option for your library media.
While the Save As feature in the video editor does allow you to create a copy of a video or capture, it assumes you are also making edits and sends the capture through the media processor.
If all you want is a copy of an existing capture/video or presentation, use the Create Copy feature. It is available from both the chevron menu for library content as well as from the content details page (which opens when you click on a piece of content in your library).
Creating copies of presentations generates an exact duplicate of the presentation, including Activity slides. Any analytics or publishing information associated with the original are of course not copied and the copy of the presentation will act just like a newly generated presentation file.
Copying can take some time for large files. The create copy feature simply makes a copy of the original, but generating this copy can take some time. While this is happening, the copy will appear to be in "processing" status, and you cannot view the copy until the copy process is complete. The new copy, once created, will appear in your library.
To create a copy of a capture or video
After the copy has been generated, it appears in your Library page. You may want to use the Edit details feature to rename the copy, which has a default name of "original_name (copy)".
Click the Info tab to view detailed event information about the copy. The Events information cites when the copy was generated (for videos/captures).
