Hi, was testing the functionality course upload with the following CSV file.
|AHIST 1401 - TEST1||AHIST 1401 - Test 1||Miscellaneous||0||08.04.2021||weeks||0||Instructor||AHIST 1401 - REF|
|AHIST 1401 - TEST2||AHIST 1401 - Test 2||Miscellaneous||0||17.06.2021||weeks||0||Instructor||AHIST 1401 - REF|
I wanted to create two new courses (AHIST 1401 - Test1 and Test2) using as the template the course AHIST 1401 - REF but with a different starting date for each course, also different from the one of the templatecourse which is: 03.09.2015.
The courses were copied, the activities imported from the REF course, but aside from the names of the topics, which reflect the new date, the restriction dates, due dates, cut off dates, etc, were not modified. They remained in September of the year 2015 when the expected behavior was to roll dates relative to the new start day of the course. For example, things should open in April 2021, or in June 2021, but they still opened on September 2015.
The result is that the method is useless for creating copies for future academic terms if all the dates must be manually changed (and they are a lot!!)
I think this is a bug. What do you think? We are using Moodle 3.7
