I have a daily event in Google Calendar that repeats indefinitely. The event was created by someone else from their iCloud Calendar.

I now want to delete all future instance of this event from my calendar, but without deleting all the occurrences in the past.

Google Help on removing an event says there is an All following option.

However, I am only seeing these options:

Google Calendar Delete Event Options

That’s strange; I just tested it and I see all three options. Try logging out, clearing your browser’s cache and logging back in. – Alex Sep 28 '13 at 10:53
Thanks @Alex. Tried that, but no luck. The event was created by someone else using their iCloud calendar. I wonder if it has something to do with that. – davmos Sep 28 '13 at 11:04
Could very well be. – Alex Sep 28 '13 at 12:25

I think that option is only available for the creator of an event. If someone else invites you, you can only delete one instance or all of them.

I too wish this was possible but it seems to be a feature not a bug. I often have events that someone else created and I can't get them to cancel the event, but I want to keep the history of that meeting in my calendar so I don't want to delete them all. – chrowe Nov 25 '15 at 17:26
