When deleting a recurring event in Google Calendar, I only receive the option of deleting "This and following events" sometimes. When this option is not available, my only options are to delete the single event or "All events", which I believe removes all instances of an event from my calendar, even if I've been attending for years, making my historical calendar inaccurate.

So "This and following events" is usually ideal when I'm deleting an event that will go on without me, but what are the conditions for seeing this option? Does it only show when you're the event owner?

Delete recurring event

  • You asked: "Does it only show when you're the event owner?" I get this problem on some events, but not on others, and that does not seem to be the differentiating factor. – Flimm Jun 17 '19 at 10:35
  • maybe the differentiating factor is whether you have permission to edit the event. still annoying – törzsmókus Oct 30 '19 at 10:26
