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 package 'based on the date of purchase'.
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' memberships via the tab selection.
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 active members'. To create a duplicate package without importing the active members, untick this box before clicking on 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 'Adult' package has been copied and is shown below as 'Wimbledon 2019 Copy 1'.
You can change the name to reflect the new year's details (e.g. Adult 2019/20) by clicking anywhere along the row to open the new package and clicking on the 'Edit package' button to make that change. Scroll to the bottom and click on 'Save' when you have finished editing. Duplicated packages will automatically show as 'Hidden', again the availability can be changed by editing the package.
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.
