Cancel an Event

When you cancel a live event, a cancellation email is sent to any invitee that has accepted the invite, removing the event from their calendar. The cancellation email is a plain text email with an attached ICS file; you can customise the message in the cancellation email. You can follow steps to Delete an Event Invitation before it’s been sent or use the instructions below to cancel an Event after it has been sent to a list of invitees.

Note: The instructions below are for Advanced Events. To learn about Simple Events, please view our article on Simple Events.

  1. Go to the Comms area, and click Events.
