Copying an Event

If you want to duplicate an event to another date, or if a new event contains the same information as a previously existing event, you do not have to enter all the event information “from scratch.” Instead, you can use the Copy Event function to copy an existing event. 

1. Click an event title from the Manage Events page, or click the Edit  icon on the Event Details page. The Event Summary page opens.

2. Click Copy Event. The Copy Event dialog box opens.

Tip: To select all event dates on the currently opened page for deletion in a single step, select the blank checkbox next to Actions.
If you have multiple pages of event dates to cancel, you must repeat this entire process on each page. 

3. Do one of the following:

To copy the existing event as is, enter a new start date, and then click Copy. The Copy Event dialog box closes. You return to the Event Summary page. The
newly copied event appears on the All tab. (Depending on the new starting date for the copied event, it might also appear on the Current tab, the Historical tab, or both.)

To copy the event to a new event, select Copy to a New Event, enter a new start date, and then click Copy. The Copy Event dialog box closes. You return to the Event Summary page. The new event is loaded to the Event Summary page with a new event ID. The newly copied event appears on the All tab. (Depending on the new starting date for the copied event, it might also appear on the Current tab, the Historical tab, or both.)

4. Optionally, to include canceled events when you are copying, select Include canceled events when copying.

5. Click Copy. The Copy Event dialog box closes. You remain on the Event Summary page with the newly copied event displayed on the page.

6. Do one of the following:

• If you accessed the Event Summary page from the Manage Events page, click Back to Manage Events to return to the Manage Events page.

• If you accessed the Event Summary page from a calendar, click Back to Calendar to return to the event’s calendar.
