Enhancement Request #1049—Replace Files with Same Name. This has been ranked as a high priority enhancement. You will be notified upon implementation.
If nothing else, if I try to overwrite an old file with a new file and the two files have the same name such as "Syllabus" .... AT LEAST provide a pop-up saying "This file already exists, are you sure you want to overwrite it?". Currently, LS simply returns an error saying File Exists! I know it exists and I want to update it. Doh!!
The LS group said a fix was started a year ago. It really shouldn't be that hard to fix. Please.
Please allow LS to over-write and replace files with the same name ... while using the insert-file pop-up.
This item has been ticketed in the Redmine System.

Thank you for your feedback
Hey, multiple files are not enough! I have a directory tree with a folder for each class period. I'm sure others have a single directory containing course content. Regardless of how each of us have it organized, PLEASE enable us to simply drag that folder to a folder on LS that uploads the entire content (directory tree) for the semester with a single action - like a drag and drop to Dropbox. Then simply let the students have read access. Maybe just license Dropbox for instructors and tie it into LS?
I spend hours each semester individually loading the files needed for each semester, one at a time.
This requires a fundamental rewrite of Testing Center software, so the release date cannot be determined at this time.
... and it isn't any more work for the testing center than it is now. Probably less for them too because it would avoid phone-tagging during the scheduling process.
You are thinking about this too hard. You could get 95% of the functionality without re-writing testing center software.
Simply sending a formatted email to the testing center requesting a scheduled date from a built-in calendar function. Email and calendar functions are already built into the LearningSuite. Then require the testing center confirming the reservation with the faculty by email to instructor listed for course (to prevent email scheduling spoofs).
The testing center already looks up the course when they schedule exams (or they should) so it isn't any less secure than it is now (i.e. a student could prank call much easier than spoof an email).
