Office 365 (Outlook 2013) - Cancel all future meetings in a series

Important: By February 28, 2017, Office 2013 version Office 365 ProPlus is no longer available for installation with an Office 365 subscription. Microsoft will no longer push any updates to Office 2013 suite of applications - complete details.

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.
