Deleted a Google Calendar Event by Mistake? Here’s How to Get It Back
Do you use Google Calendar to keep track of your busy schedule? Lots of people do, as it’s a great service that integrates with all kinds of devices.
If you have a lot of events that come and go, mistakes are bound to happen. In your haste to get things done, you might accidentally delete the wrong event. Are you out of luck? Nope! You can actually restore deleted events to your Calendar relatively easily.
First, and this one is pretty obvious, right after you delete an event, there’s an option to Undo on the top of the screen. This is great if you notice right away and you want to go back in time to get rid of your mistake.
But if you don’t notice right off the bat, there’s a little more to it. First, you’ll need to mouse over the calendar from which you deleted the event, and then click the little arrow that appears to open a dropdown menu. Under said menu is a link labeled Trash.
Click that, and then you will be taken to a screen with the events that have been deleted within the last 30 days. Check the box next to the event you want to restore, and then click Restore selected events.
Note: You can only restore events from the browser version of Google Calendar. However, events deleted from a phone or tablet will still appear for restoration, you just need to go to a computer to actually bring them back.
Have you ever missed an event because you accidentally deleted it from your calendar? It’s okay, it happens to us all!
