Copy an existing meeting into a new meeting
Allow the copying of an existing meeting into a new meeting that can be edited for content, attendees, time, etc., and then sent. This dramatically decreases the work effort of scheduling meetings and reduces friction between your users and the software.

Lets say i have a meeting scheduled. I would like to have an option to copy the same meeting with the same attendees to another schedule and maybe edit it after

Copy and paste the meeting (ctrl+c, ctrl+v). You do have to manually send the invite, but it will copy everything to allow you to make edits and then send.

The problem is when you want to copy someone else's meeting to use as your own. I recently took on responsibility for daily status. It would have been nice for some capability for the organizer to transfer to ownership of the meetings to me.
This is one of the features in the UnTedious add-in.
This would be fantastic for follow-ups. Improve efficiency a LOT rather than starting a new meeting from scratch, inviting attendees, etc.
This could be in the menu when you right-click on an existing meeting. Like Copy To New Entry or something.
I agree, and cannot believe this wasn't included in the calendar functionality. After reading these comments it appears there is a way to copy a meeting but it definitely is not intuitive.
i cannot view my work calendar from outside work, and i cannot view my personal calendar within work. To prevent clashes between the two, i often create a separate meeting and invite only myself from across the divide. I would appreciate a way to one click and copy a new meeting for the same time and location, different attendees.
Would be good that also recurrence and other settings are copied

If you have a meeting invite and then subsequently decide that you need another meeting or meetings with the same people you have to create the meeting invite from scratch. Why can't you provide a facility to copy (or clone) an existing meeting invite to create others - it would save a lot of time

Yes, Yes, Yes, please. This will save so much time!
Gemma White commented
Exactly! would save a lot of time and annoyance.

I agree with Thierry. I would like to see a more intuitive option like >Right-click on an existing Meeting > Copy From (Or Copy to New Meeting) > a new editable Meeting invite opens > make changes and Send.

Still I think the current copy process could be improved:
It shall be clear if a meeting hasn't been sent yet. Add on the top a warning message to highlight this.
Also after pasting/ copying the item could be opened right-away for editing/ sending.
(I am not sure it wouldn't be better to make another uservoice for this. maybe you want to update your request)

Also Ctrl+C/ Ctrl+V in the Calendar view works
Hi Ivan, this is already possible: I do it all the time.
Drag the first meeting with the mouse while pressing CTRL
Drop it anywhere
At this stage no meeting notification has been sent
Change the date of this clone of meeting : TADA!! is does what you want!!
