I have been invited to an event by a colleague. The event, by default, was added to my first calendar: the one that existed when I created the Google Calendar account. I would like to switch that to another calendar. I can do it if I duplicate the event, but I dont want to have two of the same event on my calendar.

For instance, my default calendar is "Personal Events". Another calendar is "Professional Events". Since this event is work-related, I want to move it from Personal to Professional but I cant without duplicating.

When I am not the owner of an event, how do I change the calendar an event belongs to without duplicating the event?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Unfortunately, since it's not originating from your calendar, you can't change it from your default calendar. All you can do is "copy" to the other calendar (and, possibly, delete the original).
