[Tip contributed by the your encoding peers at the University of California Berkeley]
If you are applying date ranges to individual course entries, it can be time consuming and annoying to type them over and over again. An encoder from the University of California at Berkeley discovered that you can copy and paste these date ranges for more quick entry in u.achieve & DARwin as follows:

  • Enter the date range in the Effective Date field.
  • Highlight the entire range once it is entered.
  • Copy the highlighted range using Ctrl-C or your favorite way of copying data.
  • Place your cursor in the Effective Date field where you want to paste the date range. Make sure that your cursor appears as the single, blinking line rather than as a highlighted box.
  • Paste the range using Ctrl-V or your favorite way of pasting data.
