Facebook built a new feature that lets users create a repeat event, company engineer Bob Baldwin announced Monday.
Members of the social network can now go to any past event that they hosted or attended, and replicate a new, similar event.
"It'll copy the details into a new event (which you can preview and edit before posting) and invite your friends from the past event," Baldwin wrote on his Facebook Timeline.
Rather than going back to square one, the feature will make it easier for users to fill in an event's recurrent details -- useful for monthly trivia nights or weekly study groups, for example.
Users can't use the feature for events created by Facebook pages they don't manage, according to Inside Facebook, likely to prevent spamming fans of the page. The website also reports that users can't invite the entire guest list of an event originally hosted by a friend; they can only invite their own friends.
