Deleted Booking calendars still showing up in recently opened calendar's list

Occasional Contributor

When having access to multiple Bookings calendars, you can open these via the dropdown menu next to the name of the Booking calendar in the Bookings UI (by clicking the downward arrow next to the calendar's name).

This dropdown shows an option to create a new Booking calendar, open an existing one, and a list of 5 most recently used opened Booking calendars.


Via this list, I noticed it is possible to still (kind of?) 'open' a deleted Bookings calendar, yielding very strange result: 

  • when initially selected, an calendar view is shown in the right frame. It looks like this is the actual calendar view from the deleted calendar, but it seems this is the calendar from the one previously opened (that is cached somehow?). For example, the employee list under 'Filters' is the one from the last agenda opened and not from the deleted one.
  • when clicking 'settings' -> 'company data' there is an error message saying to enter a company name, and empty settings fields are shown for the company data. It is possible to enter data but not to save it. Next to the inactive save button, there is a another button active, which does nothing when clicked.
  • however, the 'settings' -> 'services' and 'employees' options show the options panels configured for the last recently opened agenda


This is very counter-inuitive and confusing to the user, as the deleted calendar should either just no longer show up in the 'recently opened calendars' list, OR give an appropriate error message when clicking it (eg. 'This calendar has been deleted' or 'This calendar is no longer accessible' or even '404 Calendar not found').

The calendar was deleted via the Admin center and I can reproduce this problem long after the calendar was deleted, after multiple signout & signins. 


Does anyone else have this problem? This is really a UI bug imo. How do I report this to Microsoft Bookings dev team?

@fiterbek Yes, this is happening to us. This confused our Staff , they were able to make Copies of their calendars creating an even bigger mess. 

Thank you for your reply! It's good to know we are at least not the only ones seeing this buggy behaviour.
