You should be able to use the


action hook to programmatically duplicate post meta fields and values from the original event onto the new, duplicate, event.

HI Josh do you have an example of how this would be used? Is this something that will be supported in future updates?

Code example wise, you can take a look at the _duplicate_event() method in EE4 core’s /caffeinated/admin/extend/events/Extend_Events_Admin_Page.core.php to see how the various items are duplicated.

We are not planning on changing the duplicate event feature to include event meta in a future update. The reason is because post meta data tends to be inconsistent.
