Events: Add a new event from a template

In this article

An event template allows you to create blueprints for new events. If you find yourself creating similar types of events, such as events with the same times, campus, description, etc., you can create an event template to save all of that information. Then, you create those types of events in the future, you won't have to retype or copy & paste that same info over and over. It can be a huge time saver!

Only Admin-level users can create event templates, but anyone can use them when creating a new event. Just select the template you want to use from the dropdown in the Add New Event modal. The info from that template will automatically be copied into your new event, so all you have to do is fine-tune it.
