Thanks so much for this. Unfortunately, I will not know the IP range until 24 hours or less before the event. The instructions suggested that I post here first. I am not certain how this works, so I am still learning. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate the help!

JenOttawa added a comment to T92432: Come up with a better way to auto-label references.

I agree that this would still be an important improvement to consider. Appropriate naming using the "reuse" button on vis editor would be helpful for edu projects as well. Thank you for flagging me here!

Thanks for the suggestion {{Ping|Pbsouthwood}} . It is my understanding that there is not a place in the visual editor to add in a ref name when re-using references. From what I can see it automatically designates references re-used with unique numbers. I was told by more experienced medical editors that the name+year of pub is preferred and notice that many people spend time correcting the numbers to this. Right now to add in a ref name when editing with visual editor, I manually switch to code based editing to complete the edit or do this in a separate minor edit. I made note of this as for someone who is used to editing Wikipedia, this is straightforward. For someone new to editing or for students, this can be more confusing and add to the list of technical things to learn. Thanks again,
Jenny
It looks like this will be resolved on the community wish list. This is great! https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey_2019/Results
