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.

  • 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.

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.

  • This is not correct, it doesn't seem to matter whether you are the creator of the event or not. I can see the option in some events that I am not the creator of.

If the Organizer (typically the creator) of the event has given the quests "Modify event" permission then you can edit the event and remove yourself from it. Once you save the event it would prompt you with the option to "Edit recurring event" this will provide the option "This and following events". Once you have saved the event using that option you will still see the events in the history but no longer in future scheduled events. Unfortunately, this won't work if you have been invited as part of a group and not directly added to the event.
