Copy Calendar Event
I would like to be able to copy a calendar event for the purpose of creating multiple appointments of irregular dates and times.
I need to be able to easily copy appointments - can't understand how an office programme doesn't have this basic functionality.

Need this in the Android app please. A simple touch and hold on the event to copy, or to open a dropdown with copy as an option in the menu, should be doable.
amen to simple copy, just like he Win desktop app, drag and drop with option of move OR copy

Please add the possibility to copy events inside Outlook for Android app

Unbelievable that this basic function does not exsist at O365 Cloudversion.
As a business user it is neccesary to have this function while switching to O365.
I can´t understand that this UserVoice Item does start in 2016 and that nothing happened until now.
What is this for a definition of the voice of the customer.
Microsoft Team - Please come back with information when a solution will be profided. 3 years are gone away and nothing happened until now.
And also support needs app. over 4 weeks to give the result to us
"vielen Dank für das Gespräch. Wie besprochen, zur Zeit ist das leider nicht möglich."
"thanks for the conversation. As mentioned, at this time it is not possible to do this"
Can´t believe it!
Your task: Give us information when this will be implemented!

Missing this feature is ridiculous.

I am trying to copy events in the Outlook for Android app. Not being able to do this is frustrating, to say the least. This is such a basic function. My primary event can occur on any number of days - it is not recurring on a schedule. Creating a new event each time it occurs causes repetitive typing of the same information over and over. Total waste of time.
OKAY, MICROSOFT!!!! When will you reinstate this feature that we've been using forever and that is essential to us being efficient. No one wants to have to re-enter the same ol ****** info over and over again. GIVE US A COPY FUNCTION (like Outlook has always had). We need it. Some events are the same events but don't occur on the same day of the month or the same Tuesday of the month!!! Who is programming your new stuff? It's like it's persons who are very inexperienced in life! Listen to your clientele before programming stuff. And certainly, if you have certain functionality in place, don't get rid of it!
When will I be able to copy/paste a calendar event? Or, able to right click and choose COPY on a calendar event? I was able to do this on "regular" Outlook, but despite waiting YEARS you still haven't restored this functionality on the web based Outlook.com.
You need to understand, that especially with consultants, etc. that they may have recurring meetings that DON'T fall into a regular schedule, but occur on a regular basis. Monday-Tuesday one week, Wednesday-Thursday another week, etc etc!
It is annoying in the EXTREME to have to create appointments ONE BY ONE when in the past, one could simply copy and paste appointments to one's calendar.
PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!
How to copy calendar event to another, or multiple dates?
Using Live Mail Calendar one can press the shift key and the event can be moved to other dates with the same data that can later be edited if needed to be changed. I believe currently you have to enter the data for each date.. For example one may have doctor appointments on a certain date that is also scheduled for other dates on different days which are not the same day or frequency. I don't know outlook also allows events to be entered each week or bi monthly every 4 months as live mail does. Why would one remove these easy to use options. I have to get a new computer and the book dummies 1st statement is this is the most difficult program to use. If you don't have to move to Windows 10 --don't do it --stay with 7 if you can.
Please let me copy and paste events easily
The Outlook Live Calendar needs a Copy function, so one can copy similar but non-repeating events to multiple days.
Should be able to copy calendar appointments from one day to another day without having to enter the whole appointment over again.
Outlook flaws continue to amaze me. Seriously, "duplicate event" is not a feature???
Mike Petersen commented
Absolutely ridiculous that one cannot copy or move an event to another time or day.
Copy paste does not work on Mac. Discovered that you can create a copy if you hold down the option key and drag the appointment in either the week or month view.

Yes, this is on the app, why not online?
Hello, I would like to be able to copy and paste a calendar item. I was able to do this in the past with Outlook, but Outlook.com seems to be able to do everything EXCEPT this simple simple task.
When one needs to schedule multiple events on the Outlook calendar that are identical except for dates/times and DON'T fit into a series, this copy & paste functionality is a NECESSITY.
What is needed is the ability to:
1) right-click on a calendar item and select Copy, then one would go to another day and right-click then Paste or simply click on a day and Cntrl-V (Paste)
2) click on a calendar event to Select it, and while event is highlighted, one is able to use the Cntrl-C (Copy) command, then be able to Cntrl-V event on another day, etc.
This is something that is a GLARING omission in functionality. Please make it available SOON.
