To permanently delete a calendar from your calendar list, just follow these steps:
1. Click Settings at the bottom of the calendar list on the left side of the page. (Alternatively, click the Settings link at the top-right of any Calendar page, and click Calendars.)
2. Click the Unsubscribe or Delete link next to the calendar you want to delete.
Delete will permanently erase the calendar. (No one, including those who are sharing or subscribing to the calendar, will be able to access it anymore.)
Unsubscribe will only remove your access to the calendar. (Others will still be able to use it normally.)
3. Click OK.
When hebcal exports to CSV format, it puts the text “Jewish Holidays” in the Location field. That is there to make it easy to remove entries from your calendar if you got the wrong settings. For example, if you were using candle-lighting times but entered the wrong zip code, you could follow these instructions to remove all of the incorrect entries:
- Open your Calendar and on the View menu point to Current View and click Events
- Click the Location column heading to sort the list of holidays by Location (you should see “Jewish Holidays” in the location field for the holidays that you imported from CSV)
- Click to select the first holiday you want to delete
- Hold down SHIFT and click the last holiday you want to delete
- Press DELETE to remove all the selected holidays from your Calendar
To delete candle-lighting times, use these instructions:
- Open your Calendar and on the View menu point to Current View and click Active Appointments
- Do steps 2-5 above
Some users have a mismatch between the date format they are downloading (USA vs. European) and the setting you’re using in your control panel. This usually results in events that were supposed to take place, for example, on September 2nd instead showing up on February 9th (i.e. the date “9/2” vs. the date “2/9”).
If you downloaded a calendar with the wrong dates for events, follow our delete Hebcal Jewish calendar from Outlook instructions to make it quick and painless to remove the incorrect information.
To find out the root cause of the mismatch, go to “Regional Options” Control Panel and pick “Date”, and compare the date format you’re using. For example:
If it says “M/d/yyyy” like mine does, be sure to download the USA format from hebcal.com. If it says “dd-MMM-yy”, be sure to download European format from hebcal.com.
