Organize meetings with Outlook

Required and Optional attendees in Select Attendees and Resources dialog box, and Scheduling tab

Callout 1 The Select Attendees and Resources dialog box lets you specify whether an attendee is Required or Optional.
Callout 2 Icons on the Scheduling tab help you keep track of your choices.

You can't have a meeting by yourself. Therefore, a key step in creating your meeting request is to choose the people for your attendee list.

The best way to add attendees to your meeting is to use the Address Book, which you can easily get to from the Select Attendees and Resources dialog box. (We'll show you how to do this in the practice session at the end of this lesson.) This dialog box lets you specify whose attendance at the meeting is required and who can opt out without having the meeting be a dud.
