Deep Integration - Instructor Course Copy/Relink

Assignment Relinking Process

The Assignment Relinking Process is generally a one time process. The purpose of relinking is to update the internal pairing links that SIMnet uses to communicate with your LMS assignments. When you copy a LMS class the assignment links point toward the source SIMnet class, the SIMnet relinking process will update these assignment links to match your current SIMnet class.
Warning: You may use the relinking process to push or pull dates to and from SIMnet and the LMS after your first relink. However, be sure not to overwite your work by prematurely pulling in data from the LMS to SIMnet.

2. Copy your SIMnet section.

Warning -
⚠
You must copy the SIMnet section that was paired to the LMS section you copied in step 1. Copying a different section will cause the relink process to fail because the new SIMnet section won't contain the same assignments as the original LMS section.

Note: Blackboard users - If your school’s Blackboard is managed-hosted or self-hosted, it needs to be on the Q4 2019 or newer version of Blackboard for the relinking to work. If your school’s Blackboard is on SaaS, then it will always be on the latest version of Blackboard and relinking will work.
