How do I delete undated events from the syllabus calendar?

Jump to solution

Undated events from the previous semester were carried over to my new fall Canvas site when I imported course content from last spring. I deleted these events from the calendar, but they still appear in the syllabus list and on the calendar's side menubar as “Undated items.” I see no way to delete the events from the syllabus or the list of undated items.

You can access undated events from the calendar. On the right sidebar click undated items. You will need to drag them onto a date in the calendar. Once an event is listed on a day you will be able to delete the event.

Delete them from the Assignments area.

They are not assignments; they are events, so unfortunately your suggestion won't work.

 @jfreema , did you toggle the calendar to the new fall course when you deleted the events? When you click on one of these undated events, where does it take you?

When I click on the undated events, nothing happens in most cases. For a couple of them, the event popped up and I was given the option to delete it.

 @jfreema , since it seems that your course copy came over with some unwanted artifacts, I think your best course of action at this point is to open a support case (click on the Help link at the lower left of your Canvas page, then select Report a Problem). Canvas Support should be able to delete the undated events for you.

Thanks!
