What Can't Be Updated in Calendar?

Since this event belongs to other products, Calendar Administrators are limited to the changes they can make to the event. These attributes cannot be updated in Calendar:

  • Event Name
  • Main Date/Time
  • Location
  • Event Image
  • Event description

They can only be changed in the product's event.

In addition, an event cannot be deleted in Calendar; it must be archived in the product it belongs to.
