outlook 2016 move meetings to other calendars

We wish to move a meeting (with attendees) from one calendar to another. We see that it creates a copy using drag and drop, not a move as desired. What can we do to 'MOVE' the meeting?

    Hi @Matthew_admin Saul ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Based on my test, it is feasible to move meetings to other calendars, here are the solutions:

    • In the Calendar view, select the appointment you will move, drag and drop it until the destination calendar is highlighted on the Navigation Pane. See screenshot:
    • Open the appointment you will move, click File > Info > Move to Folder > Other Folder.

    Hope this can help you!

    Select the calendar item you want to move to a different calendar and press Ctrl+Shift+V. This will bring up a dialog that will allow you to specify where you want to move your calendar item.

    If you keep multiple calendars and often separate incoming meeting requests, this shortcut makes life easier.
