Canceling an Event

If you are no longer going to hold an event or if the date of the event has been changed, update the event title and the descriptive text. DO NOT DELETE THE EVENT. That way, users who have expressed interest in the event will receive a notification that the event is canceled or changed. Users are not notified of deleted events.


You must first login to the Comet Calendar using your UT Dallas Net ID and password to make any changes to an event already submitted.

Only approved calendar administrators can make changes to events for their department or group.

If you have question about accessing the calendar or updating events, please email [email protected].

Find the Event

1. Go to the Comet Calendar Admin Dashboard.

Go to Search Localist to search events by content or title, user (name or Net ID of event administrator) or group.

For more search options, click on the Future Events section to pull up a menu to refine search results by date, target audience, tag and keyword.

2. Select the event you would like to edit from the search result list.

Canceling the Event 

1. Put “Canceled” in the event title. DO NOT DELETE THE EVENT.

2. Add the sentence; “This event has been canceled.” at the beginning of the event description. If the date has been changed or the event is now virtual, add the word UPDATE: then explain the changes. For example: “UPDATE: This event is now scheduled for May 1, 2020.”
