Best Practice:

Once a the Delete action button is clicked, there is no way to undo the deletion and the system will not keep a list of inactive events.

Best Practice would be to keep at least one year of history for your reference in planning out future events. Instead of simply deleting an event consider:

  1. Using the Revoke button. This will prompt the system to update the expiration date to one day prior to the current date (If I revoke an event on 11/14, the expiration will be updated to 11/13)
  2. Update the Expiration date manually.
