Organize meetings with Outlook

Test yourself

Complete the following test so you can be sure you understand the material. Your answers are private, and test results are not scored.

If you modify your own copy of a meeting request (for example, by adding important notes about items that you want to talk about at the meeting), what's the danger?

You'll lose the changes if the meeting organizer updates the meeting.

Other people will be able to see your notes because the meeting request includes other attendees besides yourself.

Modifying the request will cause you to become the meeting organizer, and you'll be the new owner of the meeting.

You aren't interested in the meeting and you don't want to receive updates. How should you respond?


Just decline.

Decline, and ask to be removed from the attendee list.

A meeting appears in your calendar with a free/busy status of Tentative. You haven't yet responded to the request, but since you want to be Tentative about the meeting, there's no need to do anything more.



The meeting organizer has contacted you because uninvited attendees are accepting meeting requests for a meeting (and there's not enough room for everyone). What's the likely cause?

The organizer may have forgotten to clear the Request Responses option.

Someone is forwarding the meeting requests to uninvited people.

The location wasn't specified.
