Copy All the Things: An overview of how to copy events and event details

Often you are able to save time and reduce errors by copying events and event information. VenueOps gives you several options for copying events, functions, and event information:

Copying an Event

Permission needed: Booking

If you have a client who is returning to your building, you may wish to copy their previous event rather than creating a new one. When you copy an event, the date/time range, booked spaces, and description will be copied. You can also choose how much other information is copied - all the functions and detailing, or just the event "shell."

To access the copy event slider, click the more_vert more info menu in the upper-right corner of the event details page or the event's summary slider on the calendar. We also have step-by-step instructions detailed in Copying an Event.


Copying Details from a Different Event

Permission needed: Detailing > Edit

You are able to copy functions, their items and instructions from one event to another as long as they are booked in the same spaces. Please see Copying Details from One Event to Another for more information.

Copying Details from Function to Function

Permission needed: Detailing > Edit

If you have an event with similar functions, it may save you time to detail one function and then copy the function or copy the details to an existing function. We have step-by-step instructions: Copying Details from One Function to Another.

Copy a Function to Another Day (with Details)

Permission needed: Detailing > Edit

On the Detailing tab, you can copy multiple functions on a single day to multiple days within an event. It may be easier to build out one function or a day full of functions, then copy it to other days. This makes building out your functions faster and easier, especially for events that have similar functions happening from day to day. We have step-by-step instructions: Copy Functions and Details from One Day to Multiple Days.

Quick Copy a Function (no Details)

Permission needed: Detailing > Edit

In the function mass editor you are able to copy an existing function row to create a new function. Only the information you see in the editor will be copied, though! For more information, please see Function Quick Copy on the Mass Editor.
