  2. Select Calendar export to download the calendar ZIP file.

  3. Right click on the ZIP file you just downloaded and select the option Extract to open the folder and move the ICS file to a place where you can find it easily.

  4. Go back to Google Calendar, select the gear icon in the top right corner and select Institutions in the drop-down menu.

  5. Select Import and Export From the left.

How to Copy, Move or Duplicate Google Calendar Events

  2. Select Additional promotions and then select Duplicate or Copy to from drop-down list † menu.

  3. Select Save to confirm the changes.

Tips for copying, merging, and duplicating Google Calendar events

Copying just one event to another calendar can be useful if you want to share an event with a group of friends. Sharing events allows you to prevent all your personal events from appearing in a shared calendar.

If you want to merge an entire calendar with another, it’s better to copy the entire calendar of events to a new or existing calendar instead of moving each individual calendar event one by one.

Duplicating an event can be useful if you want to create a similar event without creating all the details from scratch. Duplicating an appointment is also useful if you want to keep the same or similar appointments in multiple calendars.
