Bug Description

Mahara 19.04
Os: Linux
DB: Mysql
Browser: Chrome

When copying a page with a plan, the plans on the new page become orphaned.
They are still listed - but no longer relate to anything.
Should the user get a copy of the plan as well when coping pages with plans artifact?

I noticed the same just recently, Kevin.

What do you say to the following options going forward?

1. Copying personal page into the same portfolio area: Same plan is referenced.
2. Copying the personal page of someone else (or from 19.10 on a group plan once that functionality is added): Copy the plan but remove the completion statuses and the completion dates. That means that the plan becomes more of a template, which will be good to have available.
3. Exporting a personal page with a plan keeps all completion dates etc. as they are upon import back into Mahara (Leap2A) or when displayed in HTML.

Changed in mahara:

Hi Kristina,

Typically when copying a page with a plan, its to have something similar for the users to follow. Option 2 sounds the best to me - copy the plan outline, but leave it for the new user to finalize.

Great that scenario 2 seems to fit your bill.

I think we'll need all three parts because of the different scenarios that we need to cover (copying own page, copying somebody else's page, exporting and importing to another site). :-)
