Duplicating a Zoom Event
Duplicating a Zoom Event allows event creators to quickly and easily create events without having to go through the entire event creation workflow. You can create a new event by duplicating an upcoming, draft, or past event. Your new event will have the same information as the original event.
When you duplicate an event, the event, session, and ticket start date/time will be adjusted automatically to the current date. After duplicating your event, you can update and edit the duplicate event with new information, as necessary.

How to understand duplicating an event
Review your duplicated event to ensure that it has correct, up-to-date event information.
The following event elements cannot be changed or updated with a duplicated event/template:
- The hub the event was created in
- Whether the event is Free or Paid
The following event elements will carry over in a duplicated event and they can also be updated:
- Event Branding
- Event Detail Page
Note: You cannot change if your event is a Free or Paid event.
- Event Access
- Lobby (all lobby configuration)
- Expo (floor and booths)
- Meeting & Webinar (session controls and in-session branding settings)
The following event elements do not carry over and will need to be reset:
- Tickets and Registration
- The Video Gallery tab
- The event PDFs do not copy over when duplicating an event. This includes:
- Session-level downloadable materials (PDF files) in the lobby and event detail page
- Exhibitors' downloadable materials (PDF files) that appear on the event detail page, the lobby, and expo
- When an event is duplicated, special-role users will also be duplicated. They will receive email notifications about their special role in your duplicated event, with the exception of manually-added expo roles (such as expo booth representatives, expo booth owners, and so on) in the Expo tab in multiple-session events.
- When co-editors are duplicated, they will immediately receive an email. When all special roles get duplicated, they do not receive an email notification until the event is published.
- When duplicating events, you can only change your event from public to private, depending on your hub's visibility settings. For example, if a hub is set to private, then the event will automatically be set to private; it is not possible to change the event from private to public because of the hub's visibility setting. If the hub is set to public, and the event is set to private, then you can change the event from private to public (and vice versa).
How to understand editing an event
Events’ date/time, ticket-sale window, and cancellation policy can be edited at any point before the sale of a ticket. Once a ticket has been sold, only the event’s copy and images, in addition to adding new ticket types, can be edited. For private tickets with invitees, the host can edit the ticket type to include more invitees after the event has been published.
If a host needs to change an event's date, time, or cancellation policy after a ticket has been sold, the host must cancel the event, refund the purchased tickets, and re-list the revised event.
