How to remove duplicate Outlook calendar entries

  1. Add-in for Outlook. It is a convenient way to remove duplicate entries in the Outlook calendar from selected folders or using the calendar context menu. Add the utility to the Outlook ribbon and remove duplicates with a pair of mouse clicks.
  2. Separate application. Remove duplicate entries without launching Outlook. Connect PST data files and use the tool without creating new Outlook profiles.
  3. Command line. Use command-line app in the Professional Edition of this utility to delete duplicate calendar entries during email migrations between computers and servers. Schedule the clean-up.

Configure the utility:

How to bulk remove duplicate events in Outlook calendar from different folders

Use option for searching duplicates across folders to automatically remove duplicate calendar entries from different folders while keeping the original records in their places. The utility will detect duplicate entries in the selected folders and then remove duplicates according to the folder priorities. Events in higher priority folders are considered originals and left in their places, and events in lower priority folders are deleted. If priorities have not been set, the utility deletes the most recent identical calendar entries, leaving the oldest ones in place.

Deleting duplicate calendar entries in Outlook for a specific period

When you know the certain dates the duplicates appeared, you can specify the period to search for and delete duplicate tasks in the Outlook calendar. Here, you don't have to re-process the entire mailbox or data file. After you've got rid of duplicate calendar entries in Outlook once, you can periodically delete recent duplicates from shared folders, e.g., once a month.

Removing duplicate entries in Outlook calendar during email migrations

Migrating mailboxes or public folders to other email systems or computers is complicated. To transfer only necessary files, such as Outlook calendar duplicates, use the command line app. Specify the lists of mailboxes, public folders, or PST files for bulk deletion of duplicates. Use the command line capabilities of the PowerShell scripts to do that.

Actions for Outlook duplicate calendar entries when removing them

  1. By default, after deletion, calendar duplicates are moved to the "Deleted Items" folder in Outlook. You can specify a different folder when configuring the utility. When you save duplicates in the selected folder, their original structure is also preserved. The deleted duplicates can then be restored to their original locations in the Outlook calendar helped by the utility for merging Outlook folders.
  2. You can delete duplicates permanently, without moving to any folder. For example, when removing Outlook calendar duplicates from shared folders. Before permanently deleting duplicate calendar entries, we recommend checking the correctness of the settings using the report on duplicate Outlook items.
  3. Assign specific categories to Outlook calendar duplicates or mark them with a flag using the duplicate calendar events finder tool.
