The Copy Schedule field on the person transportation schedule record is used for transitioning from one school year to the next. There are three options to set this field as:

  • No, do not copy = This is the field’s default value.
  • Yes, to be copied = By setting the field to this value, a new record is automatically created with all of the same information but for the next school year.
  • Copy Complete = After the record is created, it switches the original record to this value. This indicates that this record has already been copied for the next school year.

You can find additional details about this field and the data copied over in this documentation article.
