Event – Add Event – Add Copy

+ Add Copy is located under My Calendar > Add Event > + Add Copy. In the following screenshot we can see the original event and two copies.

My Calendar > Add Event > Date and Time + Add Copy

When clicking the + Add Copy a new copy of the event will automatically be added containing the same Start and End time as in the original event. Make the needed adjustments. Click the bottom + Add Copy to add additional copies of the event.

Above we can see that I have added two copies (duplicates). Using the same time but changing the dates.

Clicking to Cancel an Event Copy will give the option to “Restore” (keeping the event copy) or “Remove” (deleting the copy).

My Calendar > Add Event > Event Copy – Restore or Remove Event Copy.

This is a multi-day event.

Will show multiple events as one event overview on the frontend. If used in relation with Events widget/shortcode or Today’s Events widget/shortcode.

When the rest of the event information has been filled out and you decide to Save Draft or Publish. Here is an example of saving the above original event and the additional two copies. A total of three events are now published.

My Calendar > Add Event (published) > Publishing multiple copies

Here we can choose to View Event (frontend) or Edit Event. Or we might click the Events link seen in the left WordPress menu.

The following documentation shows an example with using + Add Copy and Repetition Pattern.
