DCS - FPF - Cloned - Choose Instance (Program) to be Copied (Cloned)
You can create a new instance (program) by "cloning" or copying a program's data from a previous program.
After selecting "Create a new Program" in the Actions Tab, you are taken to the screen below. To create a new program based on a previous program's data, enter the fiscal year of the new program and the department. Next enter the desired program number for the new program. The guide to the right of the screen can help you with appropriate numbers. In #3 enter the previous program that you want to copy or "clone." You will see all the fields that are available for cloning to the new program. Some defaults are already checked. You can choose which items you want to clone.
Click on the "Continue" button and a window will open to the Financial Planning Form. First screen of the Financial Planning Form appears below. The program shows "Draft" status in the upper right corner. The program title and location information has been filled in and the previous programs estimates have been plugged into the Financial Calculator.
Make any adjustments needed in any of these fields and then click the "Program Categories tab on the left to save your data and continue.
