Create an event by copying an existing event

To create a new event, you can simply copy an existing event from your organisation. All settings, texts and layouts of the past or future event will be taken over.

Copy Event

To copy an existing event, hover the mouse pointer over an event in the event list in the dashboard and click on this icon. "Bildschirmfoto_2020-05-20_um_13.07.48.png":

Give the new event a name in the pop-up window and click "Copy". The new event is now visible in the dashboard directly below the original event.

Depending on the size of the event to be copied, it may take up to a few minutes, for the copying process to be completed.

Please note that when copying existing events, the following functions will not be transferred:

  • Contacts themselves and their logs
  • Sent email logs
  • Website domain
  • Chat and stream moderators (as those contacts don't exist anymore)

Want to create an event from scratch? In the article "Creating an Event" we'll show you how to go about it.

Edit event

Here is a summary of the most important information and necessary adjustments to your copied event:

Event-Center -> Basic Settings

Add the new event description here, adjust the start and end dates and select the desired language(s) for your event. On the left side you can adjust the available functions for your event.

Location

Your event is taking place at a different location? Then change it in the menu item location, add other venues and determine your main venue.

Programme

Here you can add the new programme from the event. This will not be copied because the programme is based on the date and time of the new event.

Contacts

All information on contacts (e.g. event-related questions in the registration form) and groups are also copied. Now add here the new participants. In this menu item, also adjust your presenters.

Registration form

Check the registration form and adapt it if necessary. 

Website

After you have adjusted all the settings, you can check on the event website to check if all contents are up to date and fit to the new event;

Communication

Adapt your communication, e.g. by adjusting the content of your messages to your new event.

Virtual Platform

Store the new event name and subtitle as well as the description. Select a new logo and header image, if necessary, and define whether the "Speakers" and functions "Speakers" and "Chat" should be activated. Via the cogwheel you can also change the colour scheme.

Streams

The existing streams are not copied, as they are already linked to programme points. Therefore, insert your new streams and select whether they are of the one-to-many or many-to-many type. You can find more on the distinction in this article.
