Build templates for events that occur irregularly and paste them into your Calendar!
Did you ever wonder why Apple’s built-in Calendar app has no Copy & Paste? I certainly did! Stop going through the tedious process of providing every event detail over and over again and use Calendar Paste instead to:
• Schedule team meetings,
• work shifts,
• on-call duties,
• productivity appointments with your lazy self,
• events with durations like 3:45 which are ennerving to specify in the Calendar app.

Ratings and Reviews
Does the job, albeit with some rough edges
I agree with others that it would be nice if template included time. Also, I am having issues where on my list of templates, the displayed name isn’t always the title of the template but sometimes the custom text. If I wanted it to display on the list as the custom text, why have them as separate fields?
I will say, this app does fill a hole that the big calendar makers seem to have overlooked and it does a decent job. Only big UI improvement I’d suggest would be to “check mark” the dates and create all at once rather than going back and forth 30 times.
Let users predetermine TIME in templates
I also agree that users should be able to set a predetermined TIME in each template.
Why assume everyone would prefer events to begin at midnight?
I always know what time I need to set for my events in advance, yet you make users decide this every single time we use your “shortcut”. I’m annoyed by this inconvenience EVERY time I use this app — it’s such a mind-boggling oversight. This is a really needless & counterproductive annoyance, please fix it
Please allow users to predetermine what time each of our irregular event will begin when we create a template.
(Why isn’t this obvious oversight already fixed / implemented?)
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback! Currently, the app remembers the last time you used a template. I'll make this configurable in a future update, though, since so many people request this.
Doesn’t support multi-day events or event time
I frequently have all day events that last for 3 to 5 days. There is no option for this - requires a manual edit to add the additional days once in the calendar.
Also no way to set the time. At best this app is a two step process.
I walked away from Week Cal which does have templates as part of the app. But they decided to remove features unless you pay $15 a year. Greedy.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
