Can I duplicate my event?

Yes you can! Duplicating an event is simple, effective and can save time in creating new events. If you are running a number of similar events (instead of a multi-session event) you can duplicate an event and copy over most of the information and settings you've already set up.

How to duplicate an event

Within the event you wish to duplicate, click the Options dropdown menu in the top right, and select "duplicate event."

Then,

From your newly duplicated event, select "edit" in the top right of the page.Once here, you should see that your basic info, cover, registration, multi-streams and advanced sections are all pre-populated with the same information from your original event.

Some of the areas that you will probably want to update are the schedule (date/time), updated custom URL, and coupons. Make these updates soon after duplicating an event so it's ready to share with your community.

We even made a video about duplicating events:

What parts of an event are carried over to a duplicated event?

These ARE carried over

Custom Registration questions

If you are on a plan that utilizes custom registration questions, note that these will be carried over into your duplicated event. Here is an article that goes over custom questions.

Polls

The polls that you created in your original event will be carried over into your duplicated one. However, feel free to update the polls to your liking.

Coupons

If you want to offer attendees discounted tickets you can create new coupons to give out to select attendees for your new event.

These are NOT carried over

Attendees

Those who registered for your original event will not be imported to or otherwise notified about a duplicated event. To bring people into a new event, invite them or use register emails to directly import those who signed up for this event elsewhere.

Q&A Section

The questions and answers from the original event will not carry over into a duplicated event.

Coupons

If you're duplicating a paid event, any coupons created for the original event will not be copied over to a new event.
