In Outlook 2010, I want to send an meeting request to someone and if they accept also have that request give them the option of adding it to their Outlook calendar at the from the same message rather than having to put the meeting on their calendar as a separate step. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

This is a normal feature of Outlook 2010. If you do this:

1. Create an appointment in your calendar by clicking "New Appointment".
2. Click "Invite Attendees" in the button bar in the appointment window.
3. Add any message.
4. Send.

Note: If Outlook 2010 has the "New Meeting" button, you can use that too and it skips Step #1.

When they receive the message and if they Accept, it will create an appointment in their calendar.
