Deleting Recurring Maintenance.
Once each future recurring instance of a maintenance event is live then each can be edited or deleted via the main page or via the maintenance history section.
However it is not possible to delete nor edit the base (first) event for recurring maintenance. In this case you will see the following warning text at the bottom of the screen.
"This maintenance cannot be changed because recurring schedule is active"
To delete or edit the base event, the recurring schedule has to be past its end date or recurring maintenance must be canceled. You can cancel the recurring maintenance by clicking on the base event in the control panel or maintenance history.
The tab 'Edit maintenance' will show up. Click on 'Repeat options' and in the pop-up window select 'Stop schedule'.
The warning message will no longer appear so you can then edit or delete this event.
Recurring Maintenance is a new feature please contact us if you would like to enable it.
