How do I copy or move a Panopto session to another Panopto folder?

Updated

When a Panopto session is copied or moved to a new folder, the URL for the session is changed. Therefore if you copy or move a session, you must update any URLs that you have posted or sent to viewers.

You can access a course folder in Panopto by logging in through Sakai and selecting the Panopto tool.

Navigate to luc.hosted.panopto.com and open the folder that contains the session(s) you would like to copy or move.

Reference Copies vs Full Copies

When you make a copy of a session, you can create a reference copy or a full copy.

A video reference copy is a copy of a recording that is connected to the edits made in the original video. You can make changes such as the video title, folder, tags, description, owner, availability window, as well as settings for discussions, downloads, copyright, and sharing options.

A full copy is an independent copy of a recording that is not connected to the edits made in the original.

For more information and directions for creating reference copies, select this link.

Copy a Session (Reference Copy).

Check the box on the session(s) that you would like to copy. Then select the Copy button.

If you copy a session, the session will be located in the current folder and a new folder that you select. Each version will have its own URL.

Copy Sessions To window

If you do not see the folder you're looking for, you most likely haven't created a Panopto folder for that course. To create a Panopto course folder, add the Panopto tool to the course site and launch Panopto from that site.

Use the drop-down menu to select a new folder to copy the session(s) to.

Select Copy.

The session will need to process before it is available to viewers.

Copy a Session (Full Copy)

Hover over the recording and select the settings button.

Select Manage from the left side menu of the settings.

  1. Enter the name of the copy of your recording.
  2. Select the destination folder for the copy and then select Create Reference Copy or Create Full Copy.
Move a Session.

Check the box on the session(s) that you would like to move. Then select the Move button.

If you move a session, the session will be removed from the current folder and will be located in a new folder that you select. The session will have a new URL.

Move Sessions To Window

Use the drop-down menu to select a new folder to move the session(s) to.
