      Description

      If you duplicate an assignment every single setting (name, dates, type, number of submissions, max submission size, grade, ...) is being duplicated within the new assignment, but the grade category. This seems to be the only setting that is missing when you duplicate an assignment.
      In my opinion it is at least as sensible to copy the grade category as to copy the grade itself.

      Is there a specific reason why the grade category isn't being copied, that I miss?

      How to reproduce?

      • add a category within the gradebook
      • add an assignment
      • change the grade and choose the previously added category as grade category
      • duplicate the assignment
      • check the missing grade category within the settings of the new assignment
