XCLN: Optional Attendee Displayed as Required to Delegate When Receiving Meeting Request

View products that this article applies to.


When you create a meeting request, Outlook allows you to specify the intended recipients that are required for the meeting and the recipients that are optional. After you generate the meeting request and send it to the recipients, the intended recipients can examine the meeting request to determine if they are required or optional for the meeting. However, if an intended recipient has a delegate user who receives the meeting request, the delegate cannot discern from the request who is optional and who is required.

If an intended recipient has a delegate user declared when you send a meeting request to that intended recipient, delegate mail is also sent to the delegate. However, the delegate mail does not contain the same information that the meeting request contains. The mail that is passed to the delegate contains the list of intended recipients, but it does not contain information about which recipients are optional and which recipients are required. For this reason, all of the recipients are displayed as required.
