Disable / Remove Outlook Drag / Drop through Group Policy (GPO)Question:
I would like to be able to remove (or disable) the ability for users to drag and drop meeting in Outlook's calendar.
Currently when an attendee of an Outlook meeting moves the meeting they are prompted with this dialog:
You are changing details for a meeting on your calendar and you are not the meeting organizer. If the organizer sends a meeting update, your changes will be lost. Do you want to continue?
The problem that this presents is that when a user clicks "Yes" to the above, they are able to freely move the appointment within their calendar. No notification is sent to the organizer telling them that their appointment has been modified.
If the meeting organizer DOES update the meeting, no problem. However, if the meeting organizer DOES NOT update the meeting, this is where the problem lies.
I would think there could be 1 or 2 workarounds:
1.) Can we disable (or remove) the ability to drag and drop appointments within Outlook's calendar?
2.) Can we force Outlook to send a message to the organizer to alert them of a moved meeting?
The other question is what value is there for this functionality? It seems like a very big accident waiting to happen.
