Select source and destination

Select the name of your program from the Source and Destination drop-down menus. When copying entries between seasons the program name for source and destination will be the same. 

Once you've selected the program name you'll see options to select the season and the category.

Automatically pair fields

If the fields on the entry form are the same between the source and destination then check the box next to Automatically pair fields and click Next. This means Award Force will automatically match fields from the source season with the destination season.

If you see any blank fields in the list under Details then this means a corresponding field in the new season has not been found to pair with the field in the old season. You can find one manually by clicking the box to the top right of the blank field and then selecting the source field.

If the fields are different or you want to pair them to different fields in the new season then deselect Automatically pair fields and click Next.  

You'll see a table where you can select which fields to use from the source entry by clicking the small square with an arrow in it:

The fields under Details represent the fields in the season you're copying to.  

Copy the entry

When you're happy with the field pairings click Save

Select the entry to copy

Now you're ready to select an entry to copy. You can either select an entry from the list or use the filtering options to search for the entry.

Once you've found the entry, check the box to the left of the entry ID then click the Copy button. You can select more than one entry to copy at a time. To complete the process you'll need to click the Confirm button on the next page.

Note: When an entry is copied the copy will become in progress, even when the original entry was submitted. This means the entrant must review and submit the entry to the new season. If payments are enabled they will also have to pay to submit the entry.
