1970 what is everywhere!!! and duplicates galore!
Thanks for reaching out to us and I’m really sorry you are having this issue. 🙁
Unfortunately, this is a known issue so I will set this thread’s status to pending fix and link it to the bug report so the team will let you know when the bug fix is released in a future version.
The issue seems to be only when Event Update Authority is set to “Import events but preserve local changes to event fields.” I know it’s not ideal, but in the meantime if setting another option works for you I would encourage to do so.
You can get to that setting in Events > Settings > Imports tab under the Event Update Authority and you should select one of the other options to prevent the issue.
To narrow down the problem, could you tell me if you are having this issue while importing Facebook events or from other sources?
Thanks and let me know if any other questions.
Thanks for coming back.
Unfortunately, that functionality is not built in with our plugins. I sure see the value in having something like that in our plugins. So I encourage you to visit our user voice and post it as a new idea so other users may vote for it and we can add the feature in a future version. Here > https://tribe.uservoice.com
Let me know if you have other questions.

Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.
Thanks so much!
