Known issues as of March 20, 2018

If you delete the experience associated with one of your upcoming events, the event listing disappears but the time slot remains in use, preventing you from creating another event at that time.

If you encounter this problem, please submit a request to Sansar customer support, making sure to include a new URL for a valid Sansar experience. Once customer support has updated the experience URL associated with your event, the event should reappear in the events calendar where you can either update or delete it as desired.
