Copying or Moving SafeAssignments to another course

Why doesn't my SafeAssignment work after a course copy?
After performing a course copy or moving an individual SafeAssignment to another course, instructors must sometimes perform an additional step to activate the SafeAssignment in the new course.

The synchronize function deals with breaks in communication or has been copied. Don't be afraid to to periodically click the Synch button if any course level issues arise. By synchronizing, you can ensure the correct associations exist between the course and the SafeAssign central database.
