Items deleted from a SharePoint Online calendar or tasks lists in Office 365 are displayed by ID in the Recycle Bin


Consider the following scenario.
  • On a SharePoint Online site collection or subsite, you click Save site as template to create a template of the site.
  • When you save the template, you click Include Content.
  • You create a site collection or a subsite by using the template.
  • The template from which you saved includes calendar items or tasks in the tasks list.
  • You delete one of the calendar items or tasks that were part of the template, and then you view the item or task in the Recycle Bin.
In this scenario, the name for each item is (ID:x). , where the "x" placeholder increments by a value of one (1) for each additional item. For example, the names of three items in the Recycle Bin are (ID:1), (ID:2), and (ID:3).


To work around this problem, create calendars or tasks lists after you create the site from the template.


This is a known problem in SharePoint Online.
