How do I create a workflow that would remove all events on a calendar marked Canceled?

Jump to solution

We have a few calendars linked to outlook on our SharePoint (2013)and a number of events that are marked canceled which is cluttering the calendars. We like the feature of having people notified whenever they are canceled but would like to automatically remove them from the calendar after that as they are of no business value to us. Is this possible within Nintex?

so you mean you already have a workflow that sends out notifications on 'Cancelled' event?

if so, then it should be quite easy - just extend your workflow with one additional action 'Delete Item' (or Delete multiple items).

We do not have a workflow set up, my mistake, the notification is a function of Outlook. I was able to find a solution to this that didn't involve a workflow. I achieved this by creating a calculated field within a column(I called it "Canceled") with the formula =LEFT("Title",8). I hid this column from all views. I then filtered all the different views using this column to say "show items only when 'Canceled' is not equal to Canceled". I thought I would post this in case it could help someone else but the mods can feel free to delete it as it is not a solution that required Nintex.
