  • You need to install Activity Journal for this. The events are shown daywise and by Morning, Afternoon and Evening wise. Just right click on those events and select delete.

    Alternativly Stefano Candori (Activity Journal maintainer) has worked on a BIG FAT ERASER concept.

    The work has landed in the source code, but it will be available in next Activity Journal release.
