Cloning an event comes in handy when you want to use the details and configurations of an event as the base for a new event.
How to Clone an Event
To clone an event, access your events listing page by clicking on the GEVME logo in the top left hand corner of the interface.
Note: If you have access to more than one organisation, you will be presented with a screen to choose an organisation first. Click on the organisation that you want to manage and this will bring you to the events listing page of that organisation.
Once on the events listing page, hover over the event that you want to clone and click on the Clone option which appears:
From there, you will be presented with a screen similar to the Create new event screen (except that in the case of cloning, the fields will be prepopulated with the details the event which you are cloning). For a detailed explanation of the settings on that screen, check out the article Creating a New Event.
