Is there a way to turn on confirmation dialog box when changing appointment or meeting times in Outlook? My users are scheduling meetings for multiple executives and sometimes accidentally click on an appointment in the default outlook day or week view and change the meeting time. They want a way of preventing this.

Dear haikuwoo,

I am not sure if there would be  a solution for this inside outlook apart from using any third party tools . I see the only option when that can be used when you create an appointment and make is recurring every certain period. that when you try to move it to a different day , it would ask for some kind of confirmation

Thanks,
Sunray

Hi haikuwoo

You could have your users 'Invite Attendees' for the executive they are scheduling the meeting for.  Then when the meeting is changed, accidentally or not, it will give a prompt that the user has changed the details of the meeting and do you want to update the attendee?

That at least would let the user know that they mistakenly changed the time and/or allows for the executive to be informed that it is a legitimate change.
