Make it easier to find events when creating a new copy [12527]

When adding events its pretty brutal to add a past event, i have to search the website and click a couple times to find the box, and past events show up as well.

    No, you're not missing anything, this is an old usability bug :( This is in our analysis and design queue, but actual is going to take some time, sorry (no timeline).

    When adding a future event on the calendar, I go to "add event", then the choice is either "create" or "copy." When checking "copy," the window opens to every event already posted. Unless I am missing another way to copy an event, I have to scroll through every event to find one I want to "copy," and change the information for it. I recommend that when the "copy" option is chosen, a drop-down would open with a letter-by-letter search for an event that is already listed (much like the member name search). Please let me know if I am missing a shorter way of adding upcoming events by using past events.

    What if we add "Duplicate" button into event details? So you can use existing event list search, get into details and click "Duplicate" from there?

    Could you add a search bar to the 'Copy existing event' pop-up so we don't have to scroll through them all looking for the one we want to copy?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Sorry i meant copy a past event.

    When I go and add an event i can copy a past event, however i have to manually search through the events or use my firefox search feature to find it.

    If there was a way to have events by catagory (fundraiser, harescramble, trials, ice racing, school) etc it would be much easier to copy said event

    Mitch, sorry I am not getting your point, can you elaborate? Re ' its pretty brutal to add a past event'
