Prevent meeting request replies

You can send a meeting request and not track the attendees' responses. Not tracking the responses can be useful when you send a meeting request to a large number of attendees and tracking attendance is not necessary.

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Meeting Request.
  2. On the Actions menu, click Request Responses.

This turns off the Request Responses option. To turn back on requesting responses, on the Actions menu, click Request Responses.

  1. Create your meeting request, selecting any other options you want.
  2. Click Send.

 Note   If you turn off the Request Responses option, you will not be able to track whether attendees have accepted, tentatively accepted, or declined. The Tracking tab for the meeting will display None for the response for all of the attendees.
