Copy an IRG

Table of contents

During planning, you can copy an IRG from one location to another. You can also create a new IRG by copying another. When you copy an IRG, most elements are copied over to the new location, including objectives, locations, and associated ICS positions.

In addition, the system attempts to map all associated positions to the destination plan. Because of this, the following two conditions apply:

  • If a position in the copied IRG does not exist in the target plan, the position will not be copied over.

  • If a file in the target plan already exists in the facility's library structure (with the same name and in the same location), the existing file is not overwritten. The new plan points to the existing file.
