In the R&R database
The repeating reservation parent remains in the by resource and by date view until all of the repeat instances are completed. This causes lots of scrolling when tring to find open resource for a certain day.
Coming up with a way to filter out that old information would be a great time saver

I agree that it would be nice if the auto-delete agent could handle repeat instances better.

In the meantime, you can clean them up manually by selecting yesterday's reservation, click the Delete Reservation button, click Yes, select yesterday's date, then select "delete this instance and all previous instances".

This will cease to be an issue as your older, pre-R7 repeating reservations age out and the Purge Agent removes them.

The basic reason for why you see this is the pre-7.0 Rooms & Resource (R&R) design was to use the "R5" style of repeating reservation encoding; 1 document for an entire run of repeating dates.

As of 7.0, the R&R system uses the older "R4.5" style of repeating encoding: 1 document per repeat instance. This makes maintenance simpler and it also avoids keeping potentially very old reservations around needlessly.

Once the last pre-R7 reservation is 2 days past the last repeating date, the clutter will be all gone and your views more "current".
