    My wife is a nurse and works different days EVERY WEEK. How can I copy that "work" event from one day to other days?

    I use pocket informant HD but there are other calendar apps out there. I teach in secondary school and my timetable is different for each lesson so PI app does what I need. It's not free though so I would research all of them first.

    Not ideal, but you can create one repeating event for however many days she will work that month, then drag each event to the proper day; or create them for every day of the month, then delete the extras. Each time you drag/delete/change an event it will ask you if you want to change just that event, or all events. Choose just that event and it becomes a singe event on the day desired.

    Best done from the Month view.

    To drag, tap and hold until the event floats, and then drag it to the target date.

    During my short test, events occasionally shifted back to the original date after a couple seconds; probably something to do with me getting ahead of iCloud syncing when I started moving them around too quickly.

    Other than a third party app, as Hayles suggests, I don't have any other ideas.

    Me either, until I tried all the usual taps, double taps, tap holds, etc., and stumbled across the feature. ;)

    Hello Pigeonhead, welcome to the Forum. When you get a chance head on over to our new users forum. Introduce yourself. While there, take a look at some of the helpful stickies like, tips and tricks and of course the rules and regulation sticky. These will help you get maximum utilization of the forum (end of commercial). Hayles66 suggested PocketInformant HD as one way to keep track of your spouse's schedule. It is currently on sale-->trying to get the back-to-school crowd. Here is a screen shot of this app from the AppStore.

    Just and FYI.
