If your events tend to have the same configuration, it may be easier to duplicate your existing event rather than build it from scratch. Let's look at how to do that.

Step 1: Start the Process

To begin the duplication process, navigate to the Event Editor of the event you wish to recreate. In the sidebar, near the bottom, click Duplicate Event.

A white window will appear with some instructions and fields.

Step 2: Make a new name

Type in the name of the new event you are making. This will help differentiate it from the original in your Organization Dashboard and inform the new event's URL.

Don't spend too much time on this, as you can change both the display name of the event and the URL in the new event's Event Editor.

Step 3: Decide what to duplicate

You have the option of deciding to not copy everything over if it's unnecessary. If there is a section you do not wish to copy, just click the checkbox next to it to deselect that section. The breakdown is as follows:

Overview

Event description, timing information, and hosts

Landing Page

Landing page design, images, VIPs, and features

Registration Questions

All your registration questions for this event

Schedule

Create sessions with the same configuration as this event.*

*Note: You will likely need to update timing information, and, if you have already completed any sessions, may need to revert a session to the original live video source instead of the recording.

Once you have decided what info to copy, click Duplicate Event, and you will be redirected to the new event's Event Editor page.

Make sure to check each section afterwards and edit for timing issues. If you copied the Overview or Schedule, the dates will be the same as the last event and will need to be edited.
