Outlook calendar appointment invites- showing up in calendar before responded - how?
Posted on 2010-11-29
A PA in a company I support has just called me saying that when she used to invite her boss for mettings or he would get external invites,regardless as to whether or not her Boss had accepted or not, the appointments used to show up in her Boss' calendar with an indication that an appointment may be at that time (I'm not sure what the visual difference was but she said a kind of cross).
I was not aware this occured. I thought it did not show until it had either been accpted, or tentive acceptance.
Problem is she has now reported this as a problem as it is no longer occuring.
So I'm trying to establsih the fact (Therefore does such a feature exist where as soon as you are invited it puts it into your diary even when you have not responded). Maybe there is a mis-interpretation of feature and while something was occuring which appeared to do this it was the result of something else.
What has happened recenlty is that the Boss has got a new PC. Old one was XP new on Windows 7 but still attached to the domain and still uses the same user accout.
What is this feature and why would it stop working?
All input appreciated.
