To cancel an event, you need to have Edit security permissions for the event as well as permission to use the Cancelled event state.
Express Scheduling events may be cancelled without access to this event state as long as the following are true:
- The user is the Requestor contact role
- The user is able to edit the event
Generally, these are both usually true for the user who created the Express Scheduling event.
When an event is cancelled, all its location and resource assignments are immediately released for re-assignment. The cancelled event is still stored in the Series25 database.

Tip: If You Don't Have Cancellation Permission
If you do not have permission to change the Event State, you may see a Request Cancellation button. Use this button to create a task for the event owner/scheduler to cancel the event with a due date of the day of your request.
3. Save the Cancelled Event
Use the Save button to complete cancelling the event.
Note: Reversing a Cancellation
If you need to restore an event that has been cancelled, you can change the state again from the event details view (with appropriate security permissions). You'll need to edit the event to restore any discarded location or resource assignments.
To Cancel Individual Occurrences of a Repeating Event
To cancel specific event occurrences, edit the event and change the status of each occurrence to Cancelled.
Tip: Cancelling Express Scheduling Events
If an event was created using Express Scheduling, the requesting user can cancel the event if it has not already occurred.
