In "Old Outlook" you could hold CTRL and drag a calendar event to duplicate it.

 

In the "New Outlook" this no longer works, you must right click, and select duplicate, and then pick a time etc etc, much much slower than it used to be. This needs fixed.

+ 1 ... it was a very nice feature, quick and easy to manage our calendar. Very sad to not have it anymore

I agree totally, depending on how you use the calendar, this option is a must have, and it is for me.

Copper Contributor

Yes, please.

It is highly annoying to have to use multiple clicks and keypresses, instead of simply CTRL+dragging calendar events.

Copper Contributor

I agree too. This feature should be in new Outlook.

Copper Contributor

Yes, please bring back ctrl + drag to place a copy!

It's disconcerting that this still hasn't been remedied. This feature saves so much time and if it is not revived shortly, I will be discontinuing using Outlook and finding an alternative for my personal and business calendars.

I completely agree - it's absolutely vital that shortcuts like this familiar to users of 'old Outlook' are implemented in 'new Outlook' if Microsoft hope that users will migrate to 'new Outlook'.

Could someone from the development team share if this is in fact on the backlog yet?

Copper Contributor

Really need this back!

This is the one feature that is keeping me from moving to the New Outlook. Add it back and I will make the move.

ctrl drag to copy things is standard.  Why it would be removed as a feature is beyond me.
