Duplicate or make a copy of your event

With one click, you can create a new event from a copy of an existing event.

Updated over a week ago

Instead of setting up everything from scratch, "Duplicate event" is a useful and time-saving feature when you need to create a new event that's largely based on an existing event. For example, if you are running an annual charity gala dinner, you can duplicate last year's event to create a new one for this year.

👯 How to duplicate an event?

To duplicate your event:

  1. Click Manage event on the event you’d like to duplicate

  2. Click the ellipsis button (...) in the top right, and select Duplicate event

  3. Enter or amend the new event name

When duplicating events, we recommend making your event names unique. While it may be the same event or content, this will help when searching for your event or your reporting.

For example, "Sunshine Conference", when duplicated, could become "Sunshine Conference 2025"

✅ What is copied in the duplicate?

Duplicating an event will create a copy of your existing event as a new event in draft (even if the event you are duplicating from is published)​.

In this process, the following are copied from the old event to the new one:

Use the following list as a checklist to review if anything needs to change in the new event you are creating. This will ensure everything is updated according to your latest requirements.
