Delete Your Google Classroom Calendars
I use Google Classroom… a lot. Every time I create a Google Classroom it creates a Calendar in Google Calendar. It’s a mess. I can not think of any reason to have a Google Calendar for a Google Classroom I am no longer using. (To be honest, I do not use the Google Classroom Google Calendar anyway. I know it works great for some folks but not for me.) This morning I did a little coding and discovered I had 165 Google Calendar calendars generated from Google Classroom. There is no way I have enough patience to manually delete 165 calendars, so this is where knowing Google Apps Script saves the day!
Use the Menu
By default, each calendar is listed as “no” for deleting the calendar. It is bad to accidentally delete a calendar. To help prevent this I have coded it so that you have to specifically type “delete” in Column C. You have to spell it correctly also 🙂
Tip: type delete and use the fill down square to copy paste for multiple calendars.
If the calendar was deleted, the word “DELETED” was placed in Column D. If you do not have permission to delete the calendar (you were a co-teacher) an error message of “Unable to delete. Try unsubscribing instead” will be in Column D.
