    This unfortunately does not show up as a "Cancelled Meeting" and shows up as a "Meeting Invitation" in the invitees inbox, with the last meeting pre-dated as set. Disappointing.

      just select the meeting and on top left corner, there is a option to cancel meeting and a drop down option to it. Click it then select cancel series and send to all invitees, that's it!

    This is basically a cut and paste from this MS article: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Cancel-all-future-meetings-in-a-series-9eaeee8c-bfe3-46a0-a092-9a2707f3b133 except it doesn't note the important point that meeting exceptions will be lost!!!!!

    The great problem with this, if I'm right and from my readings on the web, is that any change to a former occurrence in the past will be lost.
    Is there any way to avoid this?

    I have a team meeting each week.
    From times to times, I had to change the day/time or edit the content of it.
    I would like now to delete this meeting as it will be replaced by individual ones. Whenever I try to do this, I get the same message that any past modification will be lost, what represents a great loss of information...
    Your input would be much appreciated.
