How do I duplicate a list of appointments?

Add the odd schedule change to another day

Open the date you want to duplicate and then click on "List Appts"

List Appts Layout

In this layout, you could perform a find for the exact set of appointments you want to duplicate if this list isn't already exactly what you want.  You can also omit records (ctrl/command + t) to take out any of the appointments you don't want to duplicate.

Note the amount of appointments you will be duplicating shows in the toolbar at the top

Click "Duplicate  List" to duplicate the entire list to a single day, or the "Duplicate" button on an appointment to for more options.

Click "Duplicate  List"

"Duplicate List" will let you duplicate the entire list of appointments for one specific date.  For example, you could duplicate June 25th onto June 26th. "Duplicate" (single appointment slot) lets you duplicate one appointment for a certain amount of weeks, one appointment for a certain number of days, or the entire list for a number of days or weeks.  For example you could duplicate Friday at 8:00 for 52 weeks to fill out an entire year, or every Friday appointment to Monday and Tuesday.

Duplicate List: Enter the new date and click OK

All appointments for the new date will be shown (you can right click any field and "constrain found set")

Duplicate Button on Appointment

This button has 4 functions inside:

1. Duplicate Single Appointment across Days

2. Duplicate Single Appointment across Weeks

3. Duplicate Set of Appointments across Days

4. Duplicate Set of Appointments across Weeks

Single Appointment:

Clicking "Days" will copy the selected appointment slot to the next n days (in this case, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), where n is the number in the text box. This can create duplicate appointments, so be careful!

Clicking "Weeks" will copy the selected appointment slot to the next n weeks (in this case four new Tuesdays), where n is the number in the text box.

Appointment Set

This is a more fully fledged version of "Duplicate List" from before.

Selecting either "By Day" or "By Week" with "1" in the "Number of Days Or Weeks to Add to" text box will perform exactly the same as "Duplicate List". However, with a number greater than 1 in that text box, different things happen.

Selecting button 3, "By Day", will create that many new days' worth of appointment slots, starting on the first date. In this case, it will copy Tuesday, Jun 25th's appointments to Monday, Jan 6 through Friday, Jan 11. Selecting option 4, "By Week", will copy Tuesday, Jun 25th's appointments to 5 new Mondays: January 6, 13, 20, 27, and February 3.

The result of any option will be displayed after the script completes. This can take some time, especially if there are many appointments in the set or many days you wish to copy these appointments to.
