Your event is over, and your attendees loved it! If you want to recreate the same great Event App experiences attendees loved without starting over, it's easy to clone your whole event or only certain features. 😌

This article provides step-by-step guidance for cloning an event or copying individual features to a new event.

Should I clone my event or import a few event features?

Before you start cloning, decide which option suits your event needs best.

  • Cloning your event is a great option if you want to use most or all of the same features from the event you're cloning. Even if you only want to copy over a few features, it's simpler to clone the event, then delete the features you don't want.

  • Importing event feature content is a better option if your event's basic information is mostly different and you only want to copy one or two features from an old event.

Clone an event

⭐️ Keep in mind, cloning an event doesn't copy any attendee data or content added by attendees, such as wall posts and chats.

1. Click Clone

On the My Events page, click the Settings (⚙️) icon on the event you'd like to clone, and click Clone.

2. Select the starting and ending dates

Enter a new Event Starting Date/Time and Event Ending Date/Time for the new event, then click Clone Event.

⚠️ Caution! Update the event location (if needed) before you change any session dates/times.

3. Review and edit the cloned event content

You're ready to edit your cloned event. ✍️ Review the event carefully and update or remove any content that doesn't apply to the cloned event.

⭐️ Keep in mind, we recommend updating the name of the cloned event immediately after cloning to make sure there's no confusion while you're editing! 😉

Let's use the Agenda feature as an example. To quickly delete Agenda sessions, click the Features tab and edit the Agenda feature. Check the boxes next to specific sessions you want to delete, or check the Name checkbox to select all Agenda sessions. Click the three-dot icon and select Delete from the drop-down.

Click Yes to confirm that you'd like to delete the selected Agenda sessions.

Import feature content to a new event

To export a single feature's content from one event and import it to another event, follow these steps:

1. Export the content you want to copy to the new event

First, follow the instructions in our Export and Import Feature Content article to export the content you want to copy. Select all or only some of the content — the choice is yours!

2. Delete the Unique Identifier column

After you export the content, open the export file in a spreadsheet program and delete the Unique Identifier column. Name the sheet (not the file) containing the feature data the same as the new feature name you're importing into.

3. Delete internal links and outdated URLs

If you're importing a feature that uses Internal Links, make sure you're not importing outdated links or Internal Links to features or items that don't exist in your event.

In the following example, the exported speaker data includes Calendly links and Internal Links to other content. Either correct URLs and names or simply delete them to prevent import errors. You can edit and re-link items in the Platform later if needed.

When you're done making changes, save the file.

4. Add a new feature to the new event

In the new event, add a feature of the same type that you want to recreate, then edit it. For example, if you want to import Game feature challenges, add a new Game feature to the event.
