Create true duplicates for events on copy and paste
Please allow true copies to be made for calendar events using copy and paste. Currently only the title is copied across and not the reminders, dates and times, descriptions etc.
For more details:
It would be great if you could right click and copy a past meeting and update the date and time which is what I often have to do as a follow up meeting. After coming from lotus notes which had this ability, I didn't realise how much I used it until I couldn't do it.

SHOULD INCLUDE AN OPTION TO DUPLICATE/REPLICATE EVENTS, TO MAKE A NEW EVENT WITH SAME INFO, WITHOUT CHANGING THE CURRENT EVENT
Add multiple non-sequential dates of the same meeting type at one time; i.e., we have Cabinet meetings once each month on the same day of week and time, (Friday, 9-12), however it is not always the same week of the month, so I can't use monthly occurrence. I'd like to put in the meeting name, time and location once and then input the dates without going to each month.
Correction: If you CTRL+drag the event it will create a copy with most details in-tact. The only issue with this is that you can't really drag the event to a completely different year or month very easily (although you can drag it to the next month in the calendar sidebar).
I tried the method mentioned b y Kreera but it didn't seem to work, it only moved the event and did not ask me if I wanted to move or copy.
It is possible to copy and paste an event with all of its details by right-clicking and dragging the event to another place in the calendar. Upon releasing the mouse, you get the option to move or copy the original event. The date and time are determined by where you drag it to, but clearly it's possible to copy all of the details including subject, location, body, and attachment. Why is not possible to make this available to ctrl+c/ctrl+v or a menu entry in the ribbon?

A simple right click option on an event to create an exact duplicate. For times when I have the same event at the same location, with the same people invited, but I would like to add it to different days at different times.
I would like copied events to be updated when the original event is changed. Or at least the option to "update your calendar" when you have copied it. If you click add to your calendar, it merely creates a duplicate.
Most assistants keep their managers calendars and need certain events copied to their calendars, so they are not listed as a participant. If they "invite" themselves they are shown as "busy".
It's time Microsoft wakes up learns how things have changed.
Please introduce a tool in calendar that allows me to copy and paste events or simply duplicate them to edit some details. I lost a lot of time making each appointment separately.

RIGHT CLICK, COPY A MEETING SO THAT YOU CAN PLACE IT ON DAYS WHICH ARE IRREGULAR FOR A CALENDAR
Microsoft seems to have reverted everything back to windows 95 with windows 10 and office 365.
Outlook used to do this. Why did it change??

Please add a feature that enables the users to right-click a day header and copy the date for that day.
Also, the user should be able to right click a cell, or the range of selected cells and copy the duration. The format can be something like: "12/16/2018, From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m."
* These subtle ********* makes the life easier, when someone wants to copy and paste some date/time.
* There should be options in the setting to chose the desired copy format, for example, short date format vs long date format, or if the day of week should be included in the copy.
