How to Delete Multiple Calendar Events

Greetings....

 

In ACT! Pro v18, is there a way to group multiple calendar events? Somehow my calendar events replicated themselves (up to 12-13 duplicates per event) to delete them one by one would be a real chore. I tried doing a ctrl + left mouse click on one with the idea of going down the list and ctrl + click on the last entry but that didn't work.

 

I sure would appreciate a solution.

 

Thank you.

Re: How to Delete Multiple Calendar Events

Assuming you are talking about Calendar Items. TO Do, Calls, Meetings, these are best deleted from the task list.

 

Here is a short You Tube I did to demonstrate.

Hi Danny,

 

Just to confirm, are you talking about Activities or Events? These are two different things when it comes to the Act! calendar.

 

An Event is an all day calendar entry that appears for all users as a banner at the top of the Calendar view:

An Activity is a calendar entry which is scheduled with another contact, usually with a specific time:

Act!_2016-12-07_10-17-46.png

 

 

Multiple Events can be deleted in the Manage Events window by selecting multiple with ctrl+click or shift+click and clicking Delete:

It is also possible to delete multiple Activities by using the Task List. Ctrl+click or shift+click the activities you wish to delete, then right click and select Clear Multiple Activities, then select Erase:

It would be worth looking into the cause of thee duplicates. If they are in fact Activities, then this can happen if you are integrating Act with both Outlook and Google. Are you integrating with either of these?

Thank you...I appreciate the fast response.

 

It sounds like my use of the word, "events", is an incorrect application. I'm trying to delete duplicates of To-dos and Meetings.

Thank you!! That did the trick. I have no idea how the to-dos and meetings were replicated but at 12 - 15 each it was a royal pain. Fortunately, it was limited to three months.

If your activities continue to duplicate, start a new thread and we can look into it further.
