  • On the calendar, tap on ‘Select’ located at the top right of your screen
  • For one day, tap on the date, if you’d want more, select another date
  • At the bottom of your screen, tap on “Clear History for this Day”
  • In the pop-up, you can delete for either just you or both you and the other party
  • Select which you’d prefer and delete.
