Scenario

As an admin or content owner, you want to duplicate a scheduled event or an office hour session. This may be because you want to offer the same event or session in two locations at once, or because you want to offer them at additional times or on a recurring schedule.

Solution

Use the Duplicate or Bulk Duplicate feature, following these steps:

  1. Access the event or office hour session you want to duplicate.

  2. Open the context menu (button with three dots) and select either:

    • Duplicate - makes a single copy of the event or session and navigates you to the copied event or session to make adjustments as needed



      OR

    • Bulk Duplicate - makes multiple copies of the event or session by prompting you to set up a recurring schedule for it

  3. Publish or Save the duplicate(s).

Should I use Duplicate or Bulk Duplicate?

If you want to schedule more occurrences of the event or session, but not on a regular schedule (not weekly or monthly, for example), Duplicate makes a single copy of the event or session so you can adjust the scheduled time (or any other details) as needed before publishing.

If you want to schedule the event or session on a regular recurring basis (weekly, monthly, and so on), but not change any details of the event or session, Bulk Duplicate prompts you to set up a recurring schedule and makes copies based on the schedule you set up.

Do enrollments get copied, too?

If you duplicate a 1-on-1 office hour session (as in, there is only one person enrolled in the session), the enrollment is copied over to the duplicated session(s). In all other cases (copied events and office hour session with multiple enrollees), enrollments are not copied over to their duplicates.

Do event surveys get copied, too?

If you duplicate an event with surveys attached, the surveys are copied over to the new event(s) and are rescheduled based on when the time of the new event.

Duplicating events in the Dashboard

You can also duplicate scheduled events using the Events Admin page (profile menu > Dashboard > Events > Bulk Import). It may be easier to duplicate events on that page if you need to see scheduled events in a filtered list first. Note that you can only make single copies on the Events Admin page, but the Bulk Import tool itself (utilizing a CSV export/import) allows for bulk duplications.
