Cancel all future meetings in a series

The best way to cancel remaining meetings in a series is to send a meeting update with a new end date. This prevents the deletion of any meeting agenda, notes, and attachments you or the attendees saved in past meetings on your calendar.

Important    Any exceptions associated with the recurring meeting will be lost. To learn more about exceptions, see “Working with recurring meetings” in Best practices when using the Outlook Calendar.
