Office 365 - Outlook Web App - Moving events from one calendar to another

Instructions for moving calendar events from one calendar to another using Outlook Web App (OWA).

NOTE: If you are using Outlook desktop client, please refer to Office 365 - Outlook Desktop Client - Copying Events to Default Calendar .

The process below will move the event from its original calendar (versus copying it); the event will no longer appear on the original calendar.  The only way to maintain the original AND have a copy on another calendar in OWA is to recreate the event on the second calendar from scratch.  Copying without recreating is possible in the Outlook desktop client following the instructions linked above.

1. Open the event you would like to move.
2. Select Edit.
3. In the upper left corner, you should see the name of the calendar the event is currently saved to.  Click that calendar name to display the drop-down menu.
4. Choose another calendar from the menu.  NOTE: "Calendar" is your default calendar; this is the only calendar that reflects free/busy times to others.
5. Save

Moving a series of events
The process above will also work to move an entire series of events to another calendar in OWA, but you must choose the option "All events in the series".  Individual events from a series cannot be moved by themselves, nor can you limit the change to "This and all following events".

If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
