Copy an event to any sub-calendar

Option 1: Use the Scheduler view

Change to the Scheduler view, ctrl-drag the event and drop it to the column of the sub-calendar you want the new event to be on. The copied event will be on the same date as the original. Hold down the middle handle at the bottom of the event, drag down to expand the time range without opening the editor to change the ending time.

Ctrl-drag an event and drop it to the column of another sub-calendar in the Scheduler view. Then drag the bottom to change the ending time.

 

Option 2: Use the Timeline view

Change to the Timeline view, ctrl-drag or cmd-drag the event and drop it to the row of the sub-calendar and the date you want the copied event to be on. Adjust the date range to include both dates of the original event and the copied event.

In the Timeline view, ctrl-drag or cmd-drag the event and drop to the row of the target sub-calendar and the target dates to copy the event

 

Option 3: Use the Duplicate function

Right-click an event, select Duplicate. The event editor will pop up with the original event info pre-populated except no sub-calendar is selected. You may select one or more sub-calendars and edit anything before save the new event. It’s also possible to duplicate a read-only event.
