Removing past events altogether from widget

When an event has passed, can the event actually be removed from the widget? I know once the month has gone, these events don’t show on the website but are still stored in the widget.

I have quite a few from Feb-March that I have manually deleted but if the widget deleted them automatically it would make it a lot easier :slight_smile:

Past events disappear from the widget, but not from the back end. Since the events in the list in the back end are in order of when they were added and not by date, I have to click on each one to see if they’re a past event before I can delete it. Alternatively, I wish I could see the date of the event on the events list rather than just the title so I could keep them organized.

Very reasonable idea, @user3223, thanks a lot for sharing! We’ll try to think about it in our future updates.

We also have a similar request regarding placing dates next to the events, you can vote for it here: Add events in date order automatically.

Many thanks for your help and welcome to the community! We’ll be happy to hear your other suggestions, feedback or questions about our service :slight_smile:

We use our event calendar to show events happening all around the city. It would be great if the system would automatically delete past events from the backoffice.

Greetings @user3660 and welcome to Community :wave:

I do see your point, and I’m very sorry that our widget doesn’t support this feature. We’ll try our best to consider it for the widget in future updates.

Thanks a lot for pointing us in this direction :heart:
