Copying Related Events

Security Note

In order to create and edit events as a group, you'll need to enable the following setting in Series25 Group Administration:
Basic: 2.1 Manage Event Relationships and Binding. 
Additionally, remember that even though they're in a group, related and bound events are still separate objects with their own object security. Make sure you have appropriate permissions to view and edit them, the same as you would any other event. 

When you copy an event that is in a set with other related events, you're given the option of copying just the current event as a new, unrelated event or copying the current event and relating it to the set the original event is in. If you choose the latter, a new tab is created in the Event Form for each copied event. You can copy related events from two places in 25Live Pro:

  •  From the Event Form summary of More Event Options displayed when you save an event.


  •  When you're viewing an open event.
Tip: You can expand a Calendar view of an event to show all its related events. 

Select Show Related Events in the event view navigation bar.

Info: Copying Events Doesn't Automatically Copy Their Relationships

Copying related events doesn't automatically copy the relationships unless you choose the “Copy and Relate to Set” option. You'll need to establish the relationships after you've saved the new events created from the copies, as described below.

To Copy Related Events

1. Access the Copy Function

With one of the events in the related set open, choose Copy Event from the More Actions menu.


Use the Create A Related Copy of This Event at the end of the Event Form when creating an event.


Select Copy in More Event Options immediately after editing and saving an event (with relationships) in the Event Form (if you have appropriate permissions).

2. Choose What You Want to Copy

You have three choices in the “Copy Related Events" window that's displayed:

  • Copy Only This Event - Opens an Event Form with some fields pre-populated from the originating event.
    • Copy and Relate - Copies your event and relates the new event to the same set.
      • Copy and Create New Set - Creates a new related event set including your newly copied event and those you subsequently select.

Use the Copy Related Events window to choose what you want to copyImage: Use the Copy Related Events window to choose what you want to copy.

3. Modify and Save Each Copied Event

Use the Event Form to modify and save each event you've copied.

Tip: Ways to Quickly Establish Relationships

When you save a copy, on the Event Form success page you can choose to relate the copy to the event copied from or, when the other copies have been saved, to quickly establish relationships among them as needed.
