Duplicate an event in Outlook on the Web

Have you ever had to set up a series of meetings with the same information, and you have to enter the information over and over and over? My wife Tamara showed me a cool feature I never noticed before that works on the calendar in Outlook on the Web… Duplicate Event! Here’s how it works…

In this example, I have a demo meeting set for 1:30 to 2:00 pm. I click on the event to open it:

On the menu bar, there’s an ellipsis. Click on that to get the Duplicate event option:

I can then update the title of the meeting (if needed), change the dates, and make sure I have the option for a Teams meeting turned on. I *do* need to remember to remove the Microsoft Teams meeting information in the body of the event, as that’s a duplicate of the original meeting. By removing that from my duplicate event, I’ll get a new link in the new event:

And now I have a duplicate meeting from 2:30 to 3:00, and I didn’t have to recreate everything manually!

Please remember… this only works on the calendar in Outlook on the Web. It doesn’t appear that the Outlook client calendar has this feature.
