Creating a meeting shows up as a double entry in the calendar when you create the meeting request through the File, New, Meeting Request.

This user is creating a meeting on behalf of her boss.  She shares his calendar.
When she uses the menu in his calendar (File, New, Meeting Request) it doubles up.

Not when she double clicks in his calendar and creates a meeting that way.

Why is it doubling up?

He sees the meeting doubled up as well.

when you open the duplicated entry it shows the time zone details.
Watch Question

do you mean doubled up as one for her and one for her boss in their individual calendars?


doubles up for her boss.  when he looks at his calendar it is also doubled up.
she sees it as double and he does too

SEE THE ATTACHED FILE shows how it doubles up

When she creates meetings for others it's fine.  It's only this particular boss.
this is interesting, have you run all of the updates both on the server and client side?
