How do I add and duplicate an event in the Calendar as a student?

When creating a new event, if you want to create the same event multiple times for yourself or for a group, you can create a duplicate event. Duplicating events creates multiple copies of the event every day, week, or month. For example, you may create a duplicate group event for a weekly study group. This may help keep you organized and prepared for your course.

Once created in a calendar, duplicate events are not linked together and are independent events. Therefore, if you need to modify an event, each event has to be modified individually. Additionally, duplicate events can only be created when creating a new event; editing an existing event does not display the duplicate option.

Tips for duplicate events:

  • Weekly events are duplicated on the day of the week of the first event. For instance, if an event is created on a Monday and repeats weekly, the next instance of the event will appear on the following Monday, regardless of the actual date.‬
  • ‪Monthly events are duplicated on the day of the month of the first event. For instance, if an event is created on July 6 and repeats monthly, the next instance of the event will appear on August 6. ‬
