Events Import helps to clone events. Previously we can clone only one event at a time by using ‘Clone’ button in ‘Basic Information’ tab. But Events Import feature helps to clone 75 events at a time. Here is the detailed description on Events Import:
Step 1: Click C&P ‘Event Management’ from the menu bar. If you don’t find it, click ‘All Tabs’ and search for ‘C&P Event Management’ tab.
Step 2: Click ‘Events Import’.
Step 3: To create a new template, click ‘Create New Template’.
Step 4: Enter the name of the template. This is only for the internal purpose to differentiate with other templates.
Step 5: A dropdown will appear after entering first two characters of already created event. Select the desired event so that all the settings under existing event will clone into the new event.
Step 6: Select the event items so that all the fields under that item will display. Enable the checkbox only for the fields which you want to edit. Give a friendly name to that field. This friendly name will appear as a label in the .CSV file.
