Canceling or Deleting an Event

When you log into the LiveWhale application, you'll be placed into the Your Events: Manage Events screen. A list of your events is displayed.

Note: If you are a member of more than one Calendar Group, you can switch into that group by selecting the appropriate group name from the drop-down menu next to Logged in as at the top of the screen.

Canceling an Event

If, by unforseen circumstances, your must cancel your event at the last minute, you can update your event listing to indicate the cancellation.

Example of canceled event

Your event will still appear on the calendar, but will have the word (canceled) next to the event title.

This can also be used to cancel one event in a larger series. See our tutorial on Managing Repeating Events for more information about changing series of events.

2. On the right-hand side of the Edit an Event screen, put a checkmark in the box next to This event is canceled.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the event's page and click the Save this Event button.

If your event is part of a series, click the button to Change only this event. This option will cancel this specific event, but not any other event in the series. This option is helpful when you want to cancel just 1 event, for example - if you have to cancel one week's lecture, but will keep all the other lectures in the series.

  2. Choose Delete from the dropdown menu, and click Go.

Note: The selected item(s) will be removed from the system. This action cannot be undone!
