Outlook Calendar response tracking

sblanken used Ask the Experts™

Observed Behavior:  When I set up a meeting and those invited respond w/o sending the response, in my "tracking" view it shows as though they have taken no action, yet it shows up on their end as accepted.

Expected Behavior:  When user accepts meeting invite even when they dont send the response it will register in the "tracking" view as either excepted/declined or tentative.

If this is the way Outlook works and there is nothing I can do about it, please let me know

Please let me know if you need more info.

That is the way it works.  

The response gets updated on the user's calendar when they click the accept button, but you don't get that updated response (accept) unless the acceptance message is actually sent.
