How to Undo in Google Calendar

Follow these simple steps to quickly undo or correct actions in Google Calendar.

2. Manually Recreate or Edit Event If 'Undo' is Unavailable

If you miss the brief window to use the 'Undo' button, you'll need to manually correct the error. To restore a deleted event, create a new event with the same details as the original.

If you incorrectly edited an event, open it again and change the details back to what they were originally.

3. Verify Event Restoration or Removal in Calendar

After using the 'Undo' function or manually correcting the event, look through your calendar to ensure that the event is now in the correct state. If you restored a deleted event, check that it appears as it did before deletion. If you corrected an event, make sure it now shows the right information.

4. Save Any Manual Changes Made to the Event

Whenever you manually add or edit an event, it's crucial to save your changes. After adjusting your event's details, click the 'Save' button usually found at the top of the event editing window. This ensures that your changes are updated in your calendar.

5. Double-Check Calendar for Correct Event Status

As a final step, take a moment to review your calendar once more. This is to confirm that your undo action or manual correction has successfully resulted in the event being displayed correctly. Verify that the event shows up on the right date and time with the accurate details.

Recover Deleted Events in Google Calendar

If you've accidentally deleted an event in Google Calendar and can't use the 'Undo' option, follow the steps below to recover deleted events. 

1. Open Google Calendar Trash

First, navigate to Google Calendar's trash feature. This is where your deleted events are temporarily stored. To access it, click on the gear icon for 'Settings' and then select 'Trash' from the list. This area contains events you've deleted in the past 30 days.

2. Locate Your Deleted Event in the Trash

In the Trash, look for the event you accidentally deleted. You can scroll through the list or use the search bar to find the specific event. Events in Trash are sorted by the date they were deleted.

3. Restore Your Deleted Event from Trash

Once you find your deleted event, hover over it and click on the 'Restore' icon, which typically looks like a circular arrow. This action will move the event back to your calendar.

4.Check Your Calendar to Confirm Event Restoration

After clicking 'Restore', a confirmation prompt will appear.

Go back to your main calendar view and confirm that the event is now back in its original place. Check the date, time, and details to ensure everything is correct.

5. Adjust Event Details if Necessary

If there are any details of the event that need updating, click on the event to open it, make the necessary changes.

Click 'Save' to update the event information.
