Office 365 (Outlook on the web) - Respond to a meeting request

Even if you don't organize meetings and send invitations in Office 365, you may get invited to meetings now and then, so it's a good idea to know how to respond to a meeting request if you get one.

When you've been invited to a meeting, you get a special e-mail message that offers these buttons:

To respond to the invitation

Important: If you do not send your response back to the organizer, they will not be able to track your response. In other words, it will appear as though you have not responded even though you had accepted or declined the meeting request.Meeting organizers: The only way to know when (date/time) an attendee responded to your invitation, is to save the email message that includes the response they provided.

  1. Log into Outlook on the web.
  2. Open the e-mail or calendar invitation.

    Choose Event ResponseO

  3. Click on the desired response. Make sure to send a response to the organizer so they can track your response.

Note: If you cannot remember if you have responded to a meeting request, open the meeting from within your calendar and your response will be listed just below the title of the event.
