IMDB Episode Transfer Problem

I created a page already for a short, music (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10724986/) and now I am trying to have it transferred over to a tv series imdb page as an episode (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2219556/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_11), but unable to. It is asking me to redo the entire new episode page and I already created one and added all the crew members. Can you help me transfer so I don't have to create a whole new one?

Matthew,

Go to the first link you posted, click the Edit Page button and submit a Title Correction, which is at the very bottom of the list.

When you get to the Title Correction form, you'll be updating the title to a new format. Type the title in the form this way.

"King Bachelor's Pad" (2012) {Abstinence}
"Series Title" (year of the series' first premiere) {episode title}

In the Explanation Box below the title form, write a brief message on why the title is being changed.

(Updating title from a short video to a series episode.)
You can also include the URL of this discussion post.

Acknowledge the following yellow warning message.
This correction has warnings, and you have acknowledged all the warnings. There is a mismatch between the title type of the old and new titles.
Click the checkbox to the left of the following statement.
Warning understood, go ahead anyway.
Give at least 2-3 days (more or less) for processing.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you need assistance with the submission.

Hi IMDB, 

To clarify, I don't want the title to be changed. I want this video https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10724986/ to be under "King Bachelor Pad" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2219556/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_11. We want to put the episode under this list 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2219556/episodes?year=2019. How is this possible?

The instructions GMJ gave may look strange but that is how to do it.

If you go to one of the other episodes and click the 'Edit page' button you will see the required name format at the top of the submission form and in a link at the end - for example, "King Bachelor's Pad" (2012) {Say Daddy}

You have to use that format to convert a different kind of title to an episode but once you have done that and it has been accepted your next edit of the episode has a contribution form where you have "Episode Title / Number" instead of "Title Correction" as one of the options at the end. This is what the form should look like when ready to submit.

I believe you (first) have to create a IMDb title page for the series, and then move/change the (existing) short to the episode of that series.
