The title is pretty explicit and this may be a trivial procedure but let me explain better. I accepted the invitation to a recurring event and after that, the time for that event was changed. For some reason, after the event was updated by the organizer, the event on my calendar didn't update, so now I'm trying to find a way to update the recurring event in my personal calendar. Please note that I can do this easily but I should go through each single event manually because when I edit the event I only get the prompt to confirm that I'm editing the event in my personal calendar only, but I don't get the one that asks you if you want to modify the single instance or the recurring event (which is what happens when you edit a recurring event that you created).

  • Hi and welcome. For some reason, after the event was updated by the organizer, the event on my calendar didn't update This is very odd - the change in time should have updated in your calendar automatically. Thoughts: Are you (user9870949) using Gmail? Is the event organiser using Google Calendar and Gmail? Did the new event time conflict with an existing appointment in your calendar? Have you spoke to the event organiser about this? Is there an email in your inbox that requires you to accept the new time?

  • Have you considered asking the Event Organiser to remove you from the existing Guest list, and then add you to the Guest list?

  • @Tedinoz I want to bypass the organizer and just change event details on my calendar because the change is minor and I don't want to bother with asking stuff to him. I'm using gmail but I think he is sending invites through an iCloud calendar. I don't have conflicts for all of the cases I'm considering and I accepted everytime an invite was sent to me. I'm just really disappointed that apparently Google lets you edit a single event that you are not the creator of but only singularly and not as a recurring one. Nov 20, 2021 at 6:14
  • I'm just really disappointed that ... Fair enough, but remember that it's not "your" recurring event, it was created by someone else and that's not Google fault. but I think he is sending invites through an iCloud calendar I believe there are are some known problems with this kind of thing. FWIW,, if we're talking about just a few appointments, I'd do them manually, otherwise, I'd delete them and create your own recurring event.
