Event Aggregator To Remove Deleted Events During Import

We have many bands and many events, so we found the Event Aggregator a useful tool for automatically populating our website calendar from Google Calendar. However, there often is a shifting of bands from location to location, or cancellations at the last minute. However, if a band is removed from the Google calendar, it is not removed in tribe_events during the next scheduled import. Would love to see a feature that truly updates the event list and removes deleted events during each scheduled import. It would also be nice for the aggregator to highlight events that seem similar to each other so that we can go in and either delete the event, or allow the similar events to be published.

    Hi Lindsy,

    Thank you so much for your suggestion. We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and help us improve our service.

    There is a very similar idea suggested here, it might be exactly what you are looking for. This idea is limited solely to iCal feeds. If this is what you, or anyone else, is looking for please throw your vote on that other feature request as well.

    This feature request is slightly to broad for us to keep it listed on our site. Each Event Aggregator source (such as iCal, Facebook, Meetup) has its own unique limitations. iCal feeds for instance contain absolutely no information indicating an event was deleted. Very often iCal feeds are also paginated and thus purposefully do not contain some events, even though they were not deleted. In short, this means is that in many situations it impossible to know if an event was deleted from an iCal feed, or is just not present. The afore mentioned feature request is tightly focused on the one circumstance in which we actually can tell if an event was deleted.

    If anyone of you is hoping to add an auto delete functionality to a source other than iCal, please feel free to submit a new feature request and expressly detail which of these you would like supported. If it is possible to build we will gladly accept your feature request, and keep a watchful eye on it.

    Cheers!

        This seems like a basic feature for an event importer... how hard is it to delete events imported from a source, whose unique ID is no longer present in that source?
