This article walks through the steps to duplicate an event that’s already been created.  This can save you a lot of time if you host many events (such as classes). Learn about events by watching these videos.


Navigate to the Events list under the Application Menu.

Query for the event you want to duplicate and click on one of the hyperlinks in the list to open the event record.  In my example I opened an event with ID 28.

Once the event record is open click File in the upper-left and select Duplicate.

Fill in the new information (name, date, registration close date/time) and click [OK]My example is below where I duplicated the event for 10 years in the future and updated the name to reflect the new date.

After you click [OK] you’ll get a popup notification that the process has finished.  Click [OK] again to close this message.

You can now close the original event that has been duplicated.  You can either use the black [x] in the upper-right, the [Cancel] button in the bottom-right, or the [Close Active Window] button on the left under Open WindowsIn my example I used the black [x] in the upper-right.

Once you’re back in the Events list click [Search] to refresh the results and your new duplicated event should display in the list of results.

You can now modify the event as needed, some common changes would include:

- New description

- New tickets/products

- Updated location/contact info

- New auto-responder email

- Changing labels, redirect page, etc. under the Setup > Web Customization tab

Once you’re finished making your changes you can [Save], make the event Public, and view it by clicking the [View Page] button at the top.  My example is below.

My example duplicated event is below.  All of the settings (colors, tickets/products, location, etc.) will be carried over from the previous event.
