If there's a recurring event that you used CT Live for in the past, you can easily clone the event, saving the trouble of setting it up from scratch.
Please note that by cloning an event you copy:
- Registration Choices
- T-shirt options
- Custom Questions
- Event website
- Payee info
- Location information
If you will NOT be using the same setup as the event you're cloning from for your new event, it may make more sense to create a New Event. If you clone an event, you'll need to set up the features not listed above.
If you have already cloned this event once, we strongly recommend setting up the event fresh.
To Clone an Event
- Click the Clone Event button in the lower left corner of the Event > Dashboard tab.
- In the window that appears, enter the new Official Name, Informal Name, Start Time, End Time, and location information for the event. When you're done entering information, click Continue.
- On the next page, you can map the event you're cloning to an existing Athlinks event. If you didn't set up an event in Athlinks that corresponds to the new event, just tick the I don't see existing events that should be linked option, then click Continue. When the event is cloned, a new Athlinks event will automatically be created and linked to your CT Live event.
- On the final step, select each Race you'd like to clone into the new event, then click Clone to create the new event.
After a few seconds, you'll be directed to the Event tab of your new event.
IMPORTANT! Once your event is cloned, go to Event Properties > Resources and ensure that you change the event website so that Athletes will be directed to the current year's/event's page.
