Editing an existing meeting

When editing an existing meeting in Robin there are a couple things to keep in mind:

  1. If the event was created outside of Robin then it is a synced event. In order to make changes to a synced event the Edit Synced Events setting must be enabled in the web dashboard. Synced events are flagged with a calendar icon.
  2. You must be an admin in Robin or event organizer to edit. Robin members will not have permission to edit other folks events.

 In this article we are going to cover how to:

 Watch the video or follow the guide below on how to edit an existing event

 

How to update your event 

From the web dashboard 

1
Locate & open your event from the room calendar or from the schedule view page.
2
Select the Actions tab (3 little dots) in the top right > Edit or Cancel from the dropdown menu. If you don't see the option to edit or cancel your event then you may not be the true organizer of the event and you will need admin assistance. 
3
Make your changes in the event composer > save changes.
Note: Moving a meeting between spaces is in Beta, which means when you move the meeting, the original version will be canceled and immediately rebooked in the new space.

How to edit a recurring event or series

Editing a recurring event follows the same workflow and has the same requirements as a non-recurring event (steps above), but with the option to edit a single instance or the entire series. 

Watch the video or follow the guide below on how to edit or delete a recurring event.

Robin recognizes recurring events differently depending on your calendar system; Google or Outlook.

Google and Outlook users will both see this icon recurring_icon_only.pngHowever, Google users will also have see the option to view the event details of a single event using the  "Event tab" or  to view the series using the "Series tab".
