Change Default Event Admin Forms

Is there a way to change the default values for the new event admin form?

I find that for most of my events I have to go through a dozen of the fields to set to my particular settings every time. For example, all of my prices need to have a 3% Surcharge fee. Every new event I add, I have to manually change “Surcharge: 0” to “3” and “Surcharge Type:” to “Percent”. Having these default to my settings would be a huge time-saver.

Hi Melissa,

In 3.1 you can duplicate an event and then change certain settings, descriptions, etc. so that it’s faster to create a new event.

In 3.2 we’re going to have a different system for prices that will be more like you’re asking about.

How do you duplicate events?

There is a “Duplicate Event” button in the “Quick Overview” box of the event editor.

With the surcharge, in 3.1.x you can set a default for that in Event Espresso>General settings under “Advanced Features”:
