You can duplicate an existing membership package to create a follow on package from a previous year's fixed date package - or to replicate a date of purchase package.
Click on the membership module within your admin area to see a list of your current membership packages. In the image below you can see that the packages are separated by 'Fixed date' and 'Date of purchase' membership package.
The 'duplicate' function is found by clicking on the blue 'options' button to the right of the membership package - shown in the image below:
Other options available here are the 'availability' functions - to make the package, hidden, invite only or archived.
Click on the 'duplicate' link to create a copy of the membership package and the following overlay will appear:
You have the option to import the active members at this point, by ticking the check box 'import my active members'. To create a duplicate package without importing the active members, uncheck this box before selecting the 'Duplicate' button.
After the onscreen confirmation 'duplication Successful' - you will see the package has been copied, with a number (the number represents the amount of copies you have made to-date).
The 'Junior Demo' package has been copied and is shown below as 'Junior Demo Copy 1'
You can change the name to reflect the new year's details by clicking anywhere along the row to open the new package and clicking on the 'Edit package' button to make that change.
Note: If you have duplicated a membership package with 'Lapsed' members showing in the original package - these members will not be imported during duplication.
To import lapsed members from a previous year's package - follow the 'Importing from an existing package' process into the duplicated package. You will be able to import both lapsed and active members at the same time following this process.
